–  How was your experience at The Lifestyle Institute and what did it mean to you?

My experience at TLI has been very enriching both on a personal and professional level. Personally, having to manage attending the classes from home has helped me to develop a deeper sense of organization and to have discipline. Professionally, I’ve been able to put into practice some of the knowledge acquired during the course in my current work.

– What made you decide to do the TLI Postgraduate Course?

There were various motives. One of them was to be able to continue learning and formalize my experience with UHNWI (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals). On the other hand, I wanted to learn and understand their lifestyle and also the tools needed to become a professional Personal Angel.

“One of the reasons I did the Postrgraduate Course was because I wanted to learn and understand the UHNWI lifestyle and also the tools needed to become a professional Personal Angel

– Right now you are an air stewardess, are you planning on changing career path following the Postgraduate Course?

Yes, I’m an air stewardess and right now I am working in the private aviation sector. It’s a sector that allows me to be in direct contact with UHNWI. On board the plane, I am their personal angel and I take care of every detail that their experience involves.

– Are you finding new opportunities after completing the course?

After finishing the Postgraduate Course, I decided to put together a job hunt. My experience in both aviation and in super yachts helped me get into corporate aviation. It’s the perfect next step to being able to work as a Personal Angel in the future.

-Which subjects were your favourites and why?

It’s hard to choose just one because they were all really interesting. At first, it was a bit overwhelming but then, when you finish the Postgraduate Course, you realise that each subject is a piece in the puzzle and then everything makes sense. If I had to choose one in particular, it would be “Personal Image and Reputation” and “Personal Branding”. I think it’s very important to have a good image in this profession, to know how to make yourself stand out and to know yourself well enough to add value to your candidacy. Furthermore, you are representing your client and an image is worth more than a thousand words.

– Would you recommend the Postgraduate Course at TLI for those wishing to broaden their career horizons in this sector?

My advice would be to take your time to weigh up possibilities. The important thing is to be motivated, to believe in your options within the sector and to be disciplined and organized. The programme will bring you the opportunity to surround yourself with great professionals who will share their experiences and will provide you with a great base from which you can start building your career.

Finally, tell us briefly about your career path and where it is headed following the Postgraduate Course.

I studied Tourism and when I was 21 I moved to London to learn English. I worked as a nanny and receptionist there and following this, I started to work in the aviation industry. After several years working as an air stewardess, and following the Covid crisis, I decided to explore a new path and started to work as a stewardess on Mega yachts. It was at the point that I had the opportunity to see the lives of UHNWI. This experience led me to realise how important it is to continue learning in order to keep moving forward and overcome any challenges that you are faced with.

Los alumnos de TLI despliegan sus alas

Nayla García Arévalo: “Cuando acabas el Postgrado te das cuenta de que cada asignatura es la pieza de un puzzle y todo cobra sentido”

Autora:  María José Núñez | Barcelona, Febrero 2022

Ya embarcados en la III Edición del Postgrado de The Lifestyle Institute, queremos contarte las historias que hay detrás de cada alumno que decide apostar por la formación, por nuevos horizontes en su carrera y por adentrarse en la profesión de Personal Angel. Hoy te invitamos a conocer a Nayla García Arévalo. Actualmente, ella es azafata de vuelo en aviación privada. De su paso por TLI, que califica como una experiencia enriquecedora tanto a nivel personal como profesional, se queda con las nuevas herramientas obtenidas para reenfocar su trayectoria laboral así como el conocimiento adquirido en asignaturas como Personal Image & Reputation y Personal Branding.

– ¿Cómo fue tu paso por The Lifestyle Institute y qué te ha aportado?

Mi paso por TLI ha sido una experiencia muy enriquecedora a nivel personal y profesional. A nivel personal, el hecho de gestionar las clases desde casa me permitió desarrollar sentido de la organización y tener disciplina. A nivel profesional, he podido poner en práctica algunos de los conocimientos adquiridos durante el curso en mi actual trabajo.

– ¿Por qué decidiste realizar el Postgrado de TLI?

Por varios motivos. Uno de ellos fue poder seguir formándome y capacitar de titulación mi experiencia con los UHNWI (Individuos de Alto Nivel Adquisitivo). Por otro lado, quería aprender y entender su estilo de vida, así como dotarme de herramientas para poder ejercer la profesión de Personal Angel.

“Una de las razones por las que realicé el Postgrado fue porque quería aprender y entender el estilo de vida de los UHNWI, así como dotarme de herramientas para poder ejercer la profesión de Personal Angel”

– En tu caso, eres azafata de vuelo. ¿Tu idea es reenfocarte hacia otra dirección en tu profesión tras hacer el Postgrado?

Sí, soy azafata de vuelo, y actualmente, estoy trabajando en la aviación privada. Es un sector que me permite estar en contacto directo con los UHNWI. Cuando están a bordo yo soy su Personal Angel y cuido cada detalle de su experiencia.

– ¿Estás encontrando nuevas oportunidades laborales desde entonces?

Al acabar el Postgrado, decidí crear un plan de búsqueda de trabajo. Mi experiencia en la aviación y en los Superyates, me ayudó a poder entrar en la aviación corporativa. Es el puente perfecto para poder ejercer de Personal Angel en un futuro.

– ¿Con qué asignaturas de todas en las que te formaste te quedas y por qué?

Es difícil elegir una sola asignatura porque todas son igual de interesantes. Al principio, puede parecer abrumador pero cuando acabas el Postgrado te das cuenta que cada asignatura es la pieza de un puzzle y todo cobra sentido. Si tuviera que mencionar alguna sería “Personal Image and Reputation” y “Personal Branding”. Creo que es muy importante en esta profesión tener una buena imagen, saber diferenciarte y saber quién eres para añadir valor a tu candidatura. Por otro lado, estás representando a tu cliente y una imagen vale más que mil palabras.

– ¿Cómo animarías a realizar el Postgrado de TLI a quienes deseen ampliar horizontes en su futuro laboral?

Mi consejo es que se tomen su tiempo para evaluar posibilidades. Lo importante es estar motivado, creer en tus posibilidades dentro del sector, ser disciplinado y ordenado. El programa te brinda la oportunidad de rodearte de grandes profesionales que compartirán sus experiencias y te proporciona las bases para seguir avanzando en tu carrera.

“Al acabar el Postgrado, decidí crear un plan de búsqueda de trabajo. Mi experiencia en aviación y Superyates, me ayudó a poder entrar en la aviación corporativa. Es el puente perfecto para poder ejercer de PA en un futuro”

Por último, háblanos brevemente de tu trayectoria profesional y de cómo la estás enfocando tras realizar el Postgrado.

Estudié Turismo y a la edad de 21 años me mudé a Londres para aprender ingles. Tras ejercer como nanny y recepcionista en el país anglosajón, empecé a trabajar en la aviación comercial. Tras varios años como azafata de vuelo, y tras estallar la crisis del Covid, decidí darle una vuelta a mi trayectoria profesional y ejercí como azafata en Megayates. Fue en ese momento, cuando tuve la oportunidad de ver desde dentro la vida de los UHNWI. Esta experiencia me ayudó a darme cuenta de que lo importante es seguir formandote para poder hacer frente a cualquier reto que se te presente.
