Angie is one of those Voyagers and currently works at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel in the Human Resources department. Angie, originally from Hong Kong but lives in The Netherlands since she was 3 years old, discovered her passion for hospitality at a young age. Years later she still had that spark and chose to study Hotel Management at the Breda University of Applied Sciences.
Angie is not new at Marriott International as she was first introduced to the organization during her internship at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa in Dubai. After she experienced Marriott International and the great diversity in cultures amongst employees she knew that this could be something for her future. Knowing that she wanted to explore the company and hospitality industry more she signed-up for the Voyage program.
She landed at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel where the team is delighted to have her on board.
Goodluck with the Voyage program and most importantly have a great time Angie!
