Speaker Profile

Dawit Genet

Room Service Attendant, Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa

Dawit grew up with his four brothers in SOS Children's Village Bahir-Dar. After leaving education at grade 12, Dawit was unable to find decent work.

He has a keen interest in the hospitality industry and, through support from SOS Children’s Village, Dawit was accepted to participate in International Tourism Partnership’s Youth Career Initiative (YCI). During his time in the YCI programme at Radisson Blu, Dawit was taught basic hospitality and English language skills whilst gaining hands-on experience in various hotel departments, including housekeeping, F&B and kitchen.

Dawit is currently employed as a Room Service Attendant at the newly opened Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa and, with the wide range of meaningful career opportunities he sees in the hospitality industry, he has great ambitions for his future.
