Mary June Amora, hotel staff nurse at Doha Marriott Hotel, explains how being named Unsung Hero of the Year at the Hotelier Middle East Awards 2013 boosted her confidence

Did winning a Hotelier Award impact your career and if so, how?

Winning a Hotelier Award has made me feel more confident in myself as well as within my career, and has given me the courage to pursue and achieve goals. It is nice to feel appreciated and recognised for the work that I do each day within the hotel, as well as for our associates.

What is the best piece of advice you can give other hoteliers who want to win a Hotelier Award?

I found that my humble, passionate personality has given me the drive and determination to succeed within my career. My main advice is to work hard at your job, enjoy what you are doing, and the rest will follow.

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

In five years’ time I see myself working in a hospital, and taking on more responsibilities to continue helping other people.

What are you doing to achieve your goals and dreams?

In my spare time I study and review my nursing course to keep all the information fresh in my mind. I also read nursing articles so that I stay up to date with the current trends in the industry.

What’s your dream position?

My dream position is to become a chief nurse in a hospital.

What is your life ambition outside of work?

One of my life ambitions would be to own and manage my own restaurant.
