Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Leeah Wilkinson. I’m 20 years old, and I’m a bubbly, outgoing person with a passion for tourism. I also love children.

I was inspired to Study From Home because of the great courses offered at such an affordable rate. I also loved the idea of having a little bit of freedom and flexibility.
What qualification did you complete?
I completed the Level 4 New Zealand Certificate in Travel.
Congratulations on your new job! Can you give us a brief description of your role?
I’m about to work for Disney on a Disney cruise ship in the kid’s department. This involves me living on the ship and looking after all the families that come onboard for a two-week holiday.
What’s your dream job?
My dream job would be to manage and run a kid’s club on a major cruise line.
What destinations are on your travel wish list?
The world, everywhere and anywhere!
Do you have any advice for people thinking about studying from home?
It’s a great opportunity to upskill. And if you’re not ready to take the leap and move to Auckland, you can still get a tourism qualification while being close to home.

Don’t be scared! Any opportunity is a good one. Whether it’s big or small, it’ll all help in the long run.
