Going away for the first time without any family members or anyone that I know was very terrifying but everyone there quickly made me feel at home. Like everything for the first time, it started off a bit rough in terms of settling in and becoming adjusted to my new responsibilities.
The J-1 Summer Work and Travel Program was an experience I will never forget. Not only did I make new friends with people from all over the globe, but I also grew as a person. Living on your own and without any parental supervision gives you a little taste of adulthood and what real responsibilities feel like. Not only did I make a lot of money but I also got to learn the culture of people from Russia, Colombia, Jamaica, Grenada, France, Ukraine, Thailand and of course the U.S.
This was all possible because Jobseekers International brought the program to our shores. Thank you for the opportunity Jobseekers. It was awesome.
