#hotelNEXT Mentor > Sarah O’Connor

Sarah O’Connor

Mount Saint Vincent University

Sarah is a recent Tourism and Hospitality Graduate from Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax.

Being part of the inaugural #hotelNEXT competition, Sarah was able to learn about what the next generation of hotels could and will look like, and network with many stakeholders in the Canadian hotel industry. Along with her team, she designed a place for guests to “wine down”: a wine themed hotel in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley.

Outside of her passion for tourism, she has been involved with Rotary International, the British Columbia Youth Parliament and numerous political campaigns. She enjoys travel, hiking, and exploring her newfound home, Nova Scotia.

As a young professional, she is guided by the philosophy “believe in yourself, dream, try, do good” (Boy Meets World, 2000).

Sarah and her Team came in 2nd place at the 2016 #hotelNEXT Competition
