Extraordinary Experience 2016
Alliance Abroad Group with Thato Khasuli
Thato’s tenacity, perseverance and humility paid off, and his personal journey of his thousand miles began with a single step to volunteer for WYSTC. He was selected among his peers to receive a year-long, paid internship in the United States, interning at luxury resort in New Hampshire and learning various aspects of hospitality industry.
During his internship tenure, Thato submitted an essay for a Department of State sponsored program. His thoughts on leadership was selected among hundreds of other submissions, and he was given the opportunity to visit Washington D.C.. Thato seized this opportunity to form many professional and personal connections that he intends to cultivate as he further develops his career ambitions and pursuits.
He believes this experience has opened doors of opportunity and education that would never have been possible otherwise.
