Dreams do come true at the WTTC Global Summit
2023 has really been a milestone year for me personally. On November 3, in Kigali, Rwanda, during the global summit. I had the honor of speaking on a panel on emerging markets on the main stage with some prestigious company, and it was everything I hoped it would be. The World Travel Tourism Council, I will never forget being appointed and becoming a regional member, serving alongside some of the brightest minds in our industry.
15 years of striving and reaching for this appointment, taking advantage of every opportunity that presented itself to make this dream come true. I got to share ideas that inspired and listen to ideas that provoked thought where, the day before, the presidents of two African nations were giving their address on that very same stage; I was humbled by the opportunity to address tourism ministers from around the African continent and their delegation. It was a dream fulfilled.
On stage, I felt like I was speaking to the visionaries, the dreamers, and those who may feel marginalized to believe in themselves and remember that if you have the will to work harder than you ever thought you could or want something bad enough, your dreams are never too big.
Thank you to the World Travel & Tourism Council, the executive board, the vice chair, my fellow members, and mentors who guided me along the way, allowing me to breathe life into my dream.
