“When I went to the USA for the first time, I was a different person than I am today.
"The Summer Work Travel Program was, for sure, one of the biggest lessons of my life. Now I know those lessons are the ones which made me stronger and gave me the most!
“Visiting the USA was always a dream for me...It was a huge lesson which helped me to develop work ethic and mental strength. What I didn’t realize at the time was that showing off good work ethic set me off for my freelancing path and later allowed me to become a world traveler. Everything begins with small steps.
“Americans are very friendly people and easy to hang out with. With just a little bit of effort, your English will start improving. That’s when I became fluent! From that point, I had new opportunities available to me – not just while I was working in the USA, but back in Slovakia as well. My improved English skills allowed me to find a good marketing job when I returned back home.
“Summer Work Travel was a life changing experience...Since then, I’ve never stopped!”
