“I would like to dedicate this Award to my country, but most especially to my parents’ who have played a major role as pioneers in the development of The Tourism Industry where the word Sustainble tourism were not in vogue due to Climate change, but for them it was already part of their philosophy of their livelihood.
“They have contributed a lot for the passion that i have for my country the Seychelles, and this have shape my career.
