My name is Angelica! Currently living and working in Dubai.
Since I was little, I have always been fascinated by the beauty of our world. I always think about what else is out there, about what it’s like, living somewhere else, or just to experience other cultures even just for a little while and have friends from all over.
Having a close relative who travels the world for a living, I grew up wanting to have the same career as she has. She works in the hospitality department of an International Cruise Ship. So in college, I decided to take up a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and graduated in 2006.
Unfortunately, due to some events, my dreams of having a sea-based job got postponed over and over.
Then came 2008, I had a baby boy. That made it even more difficult for me to leave the country. So for a couple of years, locally, I jumped from one call center job to another.
Finally, after five years, my need to fulfill my dreams was once again ignited. I started walking into all the sea-based job recruitment agencies I could find. But not having any experience onboard made it really difficult for me to get hired. So running out of choice, I tried to apply for a land-based job instead.
February 2014, I took my very first flight ever bound for Dubai.
I’m now living a sustainable life with opportunities of traveling from time to time.
But wouldn’t it be nice if you can just simply drop everything, pack your bags and go somewhere you’ve always wanted to go?
Break out and set yourself free. Go out there and see much more of what the world has to offer. Let yourself get lost in places you’ve never been. It’s the most exciting experience ever. Try new things. Meet new people, have new set of friends. See what else is out there and push yourself to do more. 😉
