The TCC Intern Experience: Chris Brito
Intern at The Peninsula New York
My name is Chris Brito and I was born in the Dominican Republic. I moved to New York City when I was 5, and now 13 years later I will be a freshman at the University at Albany this fall. If I were to describe myself in 3 words, I would say: motivated, outgoing, and determined. I use these qualities to remain open-minded, demonstrate my hunger for knowledge, and ultimately create connections with a variety of professionals. This summer, I realized that The Peninsula New York, a luxury hotel, is not only a place for hospitality, but also a business that has a hidden corporate environment ready to welcome me and allow me to grow. From shadowing to spending time with directors, engineers, and more, I am now ending my internship with invaluable knowledge, network connections, and relevant experience that will be useful as I springboard into my future.
