Profession: Psychology student
Company and position where you work: Ski instructor at Omni Mount Washington, NH

What is the experience for?
It helps me to realize new things. I came to do this program to get out of my comfort zone and gain new experiences. In relation to psychology, I was able to see some of the things that I learned from last year at university.

Is the job as you imagined?
Yes. Before going I consulted with a returnee, so I had a good idea of ​​how it was going to be. It's how I imagined it and more!

What is the work environment like? How is the relationship with other coworkers?
We are a ski school that teaches kids between 4 and 12 years old. Teaching we are three Argentines and one Peruvian, and there are also four Americans between 16 and 23 years old. The relationship 10 points. A nice group was put together.

What were the best things about your job? And the worst?
The best to ski, be in the mountains all day, I also enjoy a lot seeing the progress of the kids. Being able to teach them and see how they improve day by day. The worst? The food sometimes. Here in the food court they offer a lot of fried food, with a lot of fat.

What do you do on your days off?
Sleep a little more! Haha. We usually go skiing all together. We try to arrange to have the same day off so we can spend it together. We drink mate at the hotel, which is unique. We stayed at the same resort which is a pleasure, I think it is one of the biggest reasons why there are so many returnees in this resort.

Could you visit other places?
I went to Boston with the group of friends that I made, also to Orlando and now that the season is ending I plan to go to Boston for a few days. Ah! And this Thursday we will visit another ski mountain called Cranmore.

What surprised you the most?
Pouf! The human group I met here. I am bringing back home a lot of friends. We have already planned to meet in Uruguay during Holy Week!

What would you recommend to someone who would like to follow in your footsteps?
Be encouraged. Because what happened to me is that you look at it from outside and it's weird. Especially if you go alone as it was my case. Leaving the family behind three months and being on my own generated many doubts, if I was going to fit in the group, at work, etc. And the truth is that it ended up being an incredible experience. That's why I recommend that you cheer up and travel!

All this information is very useful for us and for students who want to travel with the program so we thank you very much for your collaboration.
