Hello! My name is Olha. And I`m from Ukraine. I graduated from University with a master’s degree in Economics. I started my bartender experience in 2016 with Royal Caribbean International. Due to my job on the cruise ship, I approved my English language skills and learned Spanish at an intermediate level. So now I can speak English, Russian and Spanish with the same fluent language skills. As a bartender, I made classical-style cocktails as well as created a variety of different twists. Bartending is a real passion for me. I like to create unique and interesting tastes in the new cocktails based on my knowledge and experience in mixology. As well, due to my work on the cruise ship, I was communicating with a large variety of guests of different nationalities guests. That’s why I have very communicative skills.
