Sofi tells us her experience working in the Hilton Head Island

Hello InterLatina, before telling you about my experience in the US, I would like to thank you for advising me and accompanying me on this trip. Your help was essential to make every step towards the US.

First of all, I am very happy with the experience. It is definitely an experience that I recommend to all my friends, family, or people who are looking for an opportunity to get out of the routine. I personally wish that my future children will make this trip sometime.

The place I chose is called Hilton Head Island and it is located in the state of South Carolina, in Beaufort County. The island is very beautiful, has many places near the ocean and is vast in wildlife. It has a pleasant temperature since winter is not so cold and in March and April spring begins. The people on the island are nice and it is normal to see many bicycles.

A disadvantage of this place is that there is no public transportation, and the taxi service is very poor and expensive.

On the other hand, the island is located near touristic cities and major attractions such as Savannah, Orlando Florida, Miami and Atlanta. It gave me the opportunity to go on my days off to get to know these big cities by renting a vehicle.

This has been my first experience traveling abroad and I have learned and matured in many aspects of my personality. One of my main goals was to improve my English. On the island there are many Jamaicans and Africans therefore the accent is a bit more complicated but over time one learns to communicate and get used to it.

Another positive point of this trip is that I met people from many parts of the world, Latin America, the Philippines and Europe.

It is definitely an experience that I would like to repeat, with some variations in terms of the job and extend the program from 3 to 6 or 12 months.

Thank you
