I heard about the J-1 Intern/Trainee 2017 – 2018 Program during my time of study at the T.A. Marryshow Community College in Grenada when I made the decision to say yes to such a great opportunity. Placement for me was in the Food and Beverage department at the Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas. On embarking on my journey I was so scared and shaky but that quickly went away as I stepped into the workplace because the staff were very welcoming and excited to show me everything that I needed to learn and beyond. At approximately 3 months into the program, different opportunities began opening for me. I was given the opportunity to gain experience in bartending and being a hostess at the host company.
In addition, it was a great pleasure to explore the different cultures of the many people I have met from all over the world from places like Albania, South Africa, the Philippines, Jamaica etc.
Thanks to the J-1 Intern/Trainee Program for giving me the opportunity to travel, to gain knowledge and experience within the field of the Hospitality Industry.
