Travel and Tourism Student Lands a Magical Role

Former North Lindsey College student has landed her dream role as a cast member at a prestigious children’s entertainment resort in Paris.

Yasmine Greenwood came to an open event at North Lindsey College and was particularly impressed with the facilities in travel and tourism, specifically the purpose built air cabin situation on the Scunthorpe campus.  This returned in the 19-year-old progressing from The Snaith School to study travel and tourism at North Lindsey College.

Yasmine struggled initially with confidence but soon began to build her confidence, particularly after performing in a college role as Cinderella.  This proved to be a turning point for Yasmine giving her the confidence to become an iconic crew member at one of the most visited theme parks in Europe.

Yasmine has also travelled and explored Thailand as part of her new found confidence and stated, “I knew I always I wanted to travel so I came to an open event at North Lindsey and when I saw the air cabin I was convinced this was the course for me.  I initially struggled with my confidence but this course and the tutors really helped me work on this and pushed me to be the best I can.  I played Cinderella in a College production and I knew this was the direction I wanted my future to go.  I absolutely love my line of work, it’s amazing and everyone is always happy.”

Tutor, Kayleigh Grierson stated, ''Yasmine was in my tutor group and she was a quiet student to begin. Over her two years at College she developed her skills, worked hard and became confident. However, it was when I met up with her on a College trip, in her amazing job at Disneyland when I truly saw how much she had blossomed into such a strong, independent person. I remember, when we were catching up and discussing her life plans, she said to me with a huge smile on her face ''Honestly Kayleigh, I feel like the world is mine'' and at that moment I felt incredibly proud to have been a part of her amazing journey through Travel and Tourism.''

Students on the Travel and Tourism course at North Lindsey College also had the opportunity to visit Disneyland Paris as part of their studies and met up with Yasmine whilst she was there.
