My name is Sandeep Bekane and I hail from Betim, Bardez – Goa. I completed Xth class and one of my friends advised me to do hotel management course. I thought it’s always better to have a skill along with the education. So, I joined food production course at Holy Cross Indo German Techno Centre, Marna, Siolim – Goa. During my studies I was also doing a part time job in a restaurant. I could not clear all my papers at the first attempt. But, I cleared the exam in the second attempt. My teachers helped me a lot for this. I will be very thankful to my teachers for their help and continuous support to clear my academics. I had worked in the restaurant for more than a year along with my studies and this made me more confident. I started my own restaurant with the name, “Friend’s Restaurant”, near Village Panchayat, Salvador Do Mundo, Betim, Bardez – Goa with the goal to provide employment opportunities for others, besides making a life for me.
