Be inspired: ‘ITC made me more understanding and inclusive’

Posted on 26/03/2019 by

Crissy Briggs says studying at ITC made her a more confident, understanding, and inclusive person.

Welcome back to the ITC Blog. We took a break from publishing content last week in the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attack. Our hearts go out to all the victims and their families, and we stand with the Muslim community of Christchurch and New Zealand during this challenging time.

We feel that, now more than ever, it’s important to share stories of hope, resilience, leadership, and community, so we are proud to publish this week’s blog post about one of our most inspirational students, Crissy Briggs. Below, Crissy shares her story of overcoming adversity to become “the leader she always wanted to be”. We are so proud of Crissy and we hope you enjoy reading about her journey.

Everyone climbs their own Everest, and these students hope to inspire others by sharing the truth of their journey to the summit.

“I didn’t know where I was going career-wise or what I wanted to achieve,” says Sam.

He’d completed a Diploma in IT but felt he unfulfilled by that career path. He knew he wanted to learn more about the world, but he didn’t know the next best step.

Then the opportunity to study at ITC came up, and things started to fall into place.

“Thanks to studying at ITC, I now know where I want to go in the tourism industry and how I need to achieve these goals,” Sam explained.
