Camille Pasao began her J1 Hospitality Internship here at the Village at River Landing ten months ago. Originally from the Philippines, Camille says she loves living here in Wallace because the Members are nice to talk to and she loves that the cost of living is inexpensive compared to other places she has lived.
Camille graduated from her university in Davao City with a Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management. From there she completed a work study program in Charleston, SC before joining us here in Wallace. She admits that when she first came here she felt like she did not know anything, but credits her managers at the Clubhouse for teaching her to step out of her comfort zone and learn the different parts of the Hospitality industry.
In March, Camille will end her internship contract and move on to the next adventure in her life, one she hopes will eventually lead her to New York City so she can experience Times Square and the Statue of Liberty. In the meantime, she looks forward to hosting Members next week for our Clubhouse Dining’s Filipino Buffet night. “I’m happy to show the Members what my culture and food is like…last night I told all of my tables to come join us on Thursday, January 25th for Filipino night!”
