Alpine Graduate
Polina Sepirjova

My name is Polina Sepirjova and I am a graduate of Alpine Centre, year 2013.  I hold two qualifications:  A Swiss Diploma in Hotel Management from Alpine Center and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management.

My first taste of working in the industry came as a first internship in my first year of studies at the reputable Sani Hotels in Chalkidiki where I was a Receptionist.  The first six month of my studies coupled with this internship changed me completely, from a very shy and quite person to a confident and vibrant person, open-minded and patient, responsible and ambitious.

My second internship started at Burj Al Arab, one of the most luxurious hotels in the world,  where I was employed as a Guest Services Executive, and after just 8 month was promoted to another position – Rooms Controller. This experience is unforgettable. I met many celebrities, shook hands with the President of America, accommodated many Royal Families, and much more. Sounds good? That was just the beginning! My sense of adventure took me further and for the next two years  I was employed by another huge company in UAE, the Emirates Airlines.

I travelled as a  Cabin Crew all over the world and my office was the whole sky. My dream came true! I was in Paris and saw Eiffel Tower, went to the biggest casino in Monte Carlo, climbed the Chinas Great Wall, went to New York City on top of Empire State building, had a walk in Walk of fame in Los Angeles, touched penguins in Cape Town, did bungee jumping in New Zeeland, even tried costume of samba dancers in Rio de Janeiro…among many other exciting things! This whole journey of adventure taught me how to love life, live without any regrets, how to enjoy the moment!
