Thabeena Selvaraj


After graduating with a First Class Honours degree, Thabeena Selvaraj secured a job at White Lodging in Texas following a 'life-changing' placement there.

I was given a life-changing opportunity to do a placement year with White Lodging in Austin, Texas for a year. The internship gave me the chance to learn and grow within the industry I was keen on. The knowledge and skills I have gained from my placement have moulded me into a confident and better person which has helped me a lot during my final year.

Looking ahead, I’ll be graduating with a First Class Honours degree and I’ll be going back to Austin, Texas to embark on a new journey with White Lodging. There have been ups and downs throughout the journey but the people I have met have made my journey a smooth and memorable one.

My four years at the University of Sunderland have to be one of the best times of my life."
