  • 16. Importance to my course
    I am currently taking up Bachelor of Science in Hotel Restaurant & Institution Management and I believe that the importance of my chosen biome to my course is the relationship of man to plants and animals. Without plants and animals, beauty wouldn’t exist in nature. In my course, we become hoteliers, chefs, and work in the tourism industry. I’m talking up Hospitality and beauty is important there. We decorate hotels with plants, everywhere you go, you’ll always see a plant Without these plants and animals, we won’t survive.
