– The best part about life?
– Every morning you have a new opportunity to become a better version of yourself.
It is exactly how I feel every day waking up. I am Tien Nguyen, a third year student at Hue Tourism Faculty. I have been doing my two-month internship at Beebee Travel as a tour guide trainee during Hue City Walking Tour. You know what I learn so far?
I find a better, happier and more mature version of myself! I’ve been observing and learning a lot from our lead hosts of Beebee Team who are very passionate about telling stories of Hue.
Today is a special day of my life…
This morning was the first time I’ve led Hue City Walking Tour with the lady who is my first client. To mark my epic start, there was some showers, however, I was not nervous at all!
My client’s name is Prue, 41 years old, comes from Australia. She lives in her rental house in South-Eastern Australia near the beach with two dogs. She told me that she has worked for her company for over 10 years. She had a one month long vacation in Vietnam to pay off for her hard-working efforts.
For me, my first experience was so meaningful. I had only one client so my attention was on her!
I told many stories of Hue, followed by some historical evidence during our walking tour. She didn’t ask me many questions. She honestly admitted that she’s not good at making questions so I asked her to make sure that she understood everything.
I did not feel like our relationship was tour guide and client, in fact, it was more like friends eager to share and learn from each other. Our tour ended a big smile on her face that made me believe that I’ve had a fruitful start. This is what she has written to me on TripAdvisor.
From now on, I’m a better self and also more confident than before. I will not stop here for sure. I am eager to accept new challenge in the future to become a great host for my country.
If you’ve ever heard a saying “Be brave! If you’re not, pretend to be”, I believe I’m a brave girl dare to walk in rain this morning to grow faster and stronger!
