“I arrived from Peru as a J1 student. Many young university students get the opportunity to visit other countries and practice their English with this visa, and the program allowed me to improve my English and really emerge in the culture. I fell in love with the beauty of Steamboat’s surroundings, the sense of community and the vast opportunities this town has to offer — which is very different from my home country.”
