My name is Reginald Muteiwa, I am 20 years old straight out of the heart of southern Africa, Zimbabwe. I am currently studying my first year of the Swiss Alpine Center Culinary Arts Diploma offered at City Unity and on the road to beginning my first internship at Out Of The Blue Capsis Elite Resort in Heraklion, on the lovely island of Crete in Greece.
I discovered the Swiss Alpine Centre by chance on a seemingly endless search to find the right institution that fit my needs and curiosity into the depth of Mediterranean cuisine and provided a gateway to fully express my love for food. I gained more than I bargained for thanks to the Alpine family with the chance to interact with individuals from different corners of the world and society, network with successful professionals and organizations within the tourism industry and also gain an education like no other that focused on cultivating practical skills, work place professionalism, encouraged full on teaching of all aspects of the hotel and tourism industry not only limited to your field of study and most importantly showed me that the world is an oyster of opportunity open to anyone no matter where you come from or who you are. It’s an added bonus that I had chance to study in one of the most beautiful countries on earth, and made life long memories and friendships that I am truly grateful for. Opa!
