This young lady was one of our International Hotel School Trainees at our Westville B&B, Durban. When I met Simphiwe, I knew I would have to paint her. She had a kind and gentle nature, and a big beaming smile that made her popular with both our team and our guests. I invited her along with another staff member to attend INDABA Travel and Tourism Exhibition at the ICC, and it was just wonderful how she lapped up all that she learned while we exhibited at the invitation of the Tourism Grading Council on their 5-star Pavilion.
She went on to work for a big hotel chain in Auckland, New Zealand after her time with us.
