"Hi! I am Kiz Elizalde from Philippines. I had my J1 visa internship in one of the best hotels in Montana for 1 year as a Housekeeping Supervisor. My internship journey was not easy but I could say that it was worth it! I found friends, met new people everyday at work, worked with different people and got to learn new things everyday. I also met other interns from different countries like Turkey, Romania and Peru. I finally experienced four seasons too. Fall season was my favorite because it’s not too hot, not too cold and with lots of colorful leaves around. Four seasons doesn’t happen in my country, so, I feel delighted about it.
This internship helped me a lot about my self-growth, taught me a lot of things at work not just an employee but also as a person. My learnings here will always be important wherever my life takes me. This internship is also a blessing to me because I get to experience what American culture is all about in which not all people get to have, and it was all fun to learn those things! And lastly, I would like to thank IRES because all of these wouldn’t be possible without their assistance. Ms Kelley, Ms Andrea and the rest of their team helped me since the beginning of the process until I get to United States! And not just that, they give best choices of hotels to have your training. So, if you want to have assurance and best internship experience, I would highly recommend IRES."
