"The program experience in the U.S. gave me unforgettable moments and the most unforgettable year of my life. Not just to meet new friends but it's an experience with the chance to explore, be yourself and to be an inspiration to the next generation who will have their internship."
Katrina, Marco Beach Resort
"My experience in the U.S. was overall amazing. The training I had at The King and Prince Resort extended my knowledge and capabilities as a chef. When they offered me a promotion, it didn't only make me a better leader, but it also developed my confidence in everything that I do. I had no regrets being in the U.S. and it changed my life in many ways imaginable. Thanks to TransUSA Exchange for making it possible."
Louie, The King & Prince Resort
"Being away from your comfort zone for a year is one of the scariest experiences one could ever have. Little did I know, coming to the United States would be one of the best experience I ever had in my life. I had my training at Hyatt Regency in Downtown Houston with my roommates Leaster and Nikki. We met a lot of people who taught us how to be a better version of ourselves. The chefs, co-workers and everyone we met gave us all the fun, love and lessons we need. It is so PRICELESS. It was just a dream before, but everything is still not sinking into me. I don't know how to thank everyone who helped me to go where I am right now. But first, I want to thank TransUSA Exchange for making my dreams come true easily."
Chelsea, Hyatt Regency Houston
"Being here for 4 months now has been one of the greatest experience of my life, I never thought that my internship could take me to places like these. Participating in TransUSA Exchange has been a blast! I get to further enhance my skills as a cook, meet different people and their cultures, but most of all change the way I look at life. Back home I was living inside my comfort zone, like having people cook for me, do my laundry, ask for money. But when I came here it all changed. I became my own man, the captain of my own ship. No one to turn to but myself, I suddenly realized that working in the U.S. made me grow not just as a professional, but most of all as an individual. Being a J-1 intern, it opened my eyes to vast opportunities that I've never imagined. But the most important thing about this program is that I am able to improve my skills and at the same time get to explore this beautiful country which I will cherish for the rest of my life."
