Unathi Ngewu Curriculum Vitae


Unathi Ngewu

I am passionate about my work because I have an undeniable love for what I do and my motivation has prompted me to do my best. As a goal-oriented person, I am ambitious and motivated. I tend to thrive in challenges and I am always eager to get chances to gain experience and expand my knowledge as well as growing in the industry. I completed high school in 2016 at Port Shepstone High School and I was introduced to hospitality from the start of 2017 when I started at the International Hotel School, during my tenure at the International Hotel School I was able to acquire a year of industry experience whereby I was exposed to the different aspects of hospitality. I have worked in successful hotels namely Southern Sun (Tsogo Sun). I have also competed in the “World Skills South Africa” competition where my fine dining skills and knowledge was tested. The competition helped refine my time management and communicating skills. I work well in a team as I have been exposed to the industry and I had to work in teams to accomplish a common goal. I’m a natural leader and I am of good health. I’m a hard working person who is open to learn more skills and excel in the job position that I have been given. PERSONAL DETAILS
