Eunice Umumararungu's journey from aspiring chef to managerial excellence epitomizes the transformative impact of a Vatel Rwanda education.

“My career journey has been incredibly exciting, from a three-week internship at the Radisson to where I am today. Initially aspiring to be a chef, I cherished the significance of food to people and the diverse ways it's perceived. However, my journey took an unexpected turn during my six-month internship Nyurah Restaurant, where I delved into the kitchen and learned valuable details and creativity. As I explored different hotel departments over the next two years, my perspective shifted towards management, realizing its pivotal role in every aspect. During my third year at Nyurah, assisting Chef Tamsir and closely working with other chefs, I honed my skills. Transitioning to Wilderness Safaris, I embraced a managerial role, applying the knowledge gained at Vatel Rwanda and continuously growing. Reflecting on my journey, I credit Vatel Rwanda for shaping my work ethic, professionalism, and success in the hospitality industry.” - Eunice Umumararungu, class of 2022.
