Currently immersed in the enriching journey of pursuing the second batch of the CFT Diploma through SUNx Malta in collaboration with ITS, I bring a diverse background rooted in education to the forefront of our sustainable tourism endeavours. With a past anchored in teaching and extensive engagement with stakeholders in sustainability, I have now ventured into the realm of private tourism. My aspiration is to steer these endeavours towards sustainability, embracing pragmatism as a guiding principle. 

In our pursuit of sustainability, I want to stand out as a beacon of responsibility in the tourism industry. my commitment is to operate in a manner that respects our environment, supports local communities, and preserves cultural heritage. As I navigate this journey, my aim is to lead by example, inspiring and engaging fellow industry members to embrace the same ethos of responsibility. Together, we can transform the landscape of tourism, ensuring that every step we take is a step towards a more sustainable future.
