A Retrospective in Pictures: A Trainee Looks Back
By Merrill Hill, Career Advancement Program Assistant
Adriana from Peru began her trainee placement in Park City, UT in September 2013. Now, half way through her program, she took some time out to reflect on her experiences in America and sent us pictures to help tell her story.
“I experienced my first Thanksgiving! In Lima, we don’t celebrate that holiday so my boss invited me to his family’s dinner. They taught me how to make stuffing and the 14 pound turkey. I made apple pie for them.”
“For Oktoberfest,we went to a resort called Snowbird. It was really fun, with lots of German traditions.”
“For Halloween there was a costume contest at work; I did not win. Right after that we went to Main St. All the stores and restaurants open their doors and give candies and chocolates.”
“For Valentines, since its a very busy week and most of us were training on the night shift, we went out for lunch to a Peruvian restaurant. Paraguayans, Peruvians and Americans hanging out and having a good time :).”
With 6 months down and 6 months left to go, we can’t wait to see what else Adriana experiences!
