Cimoan Atkins: Following a Path of Opportunities

With a degree in International Development behind her, Cimoan knew she wanted to travel as part of her career, but wanted more hands-on experience, so she enrolled in the Hospitality & Tourism Operations Management (HTOM) post-graduate program at Humber College.

She couldn’t have imagined the path she would take to find her true passion, thanks to opportunities available at Humber and the supportive faculty and staff in the School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism.
