We’re now off to an amazing Summer Work & Travel experience in the USA!
A heartfelt congratulations to Seng Kai, Matthew, Dominic & Khai Kee who got their visas approved earlier this month!
Seng Kai & his friends are avid followers of the Work & Travel USA program. When the pandemic hit last year, they had to put off their plans, but remained resilient and determined to join the program once it was possible to do so.
Once the Summer 2021 intake opened, Seng Kai and Matthew signed up in a heartbeat. A month later, they secured job offers from Ober Gatlinburg in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Following his success, his friends Dominic & Khai Kee jumped on the bandwagon too. Both interviewed successfully and received job offers from YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado.
With full support from the Infinity Abroad team, a lengthy process followed in getting their application paperwork in order, arranging overseas travel approval and in April, once the J-1 visa suspension was lifted, Seng Kai and his friends attended visa interview appointments at the U.S. Consulate in Kuala Lumpur. Their visas were approved on the spot. With this final chip in place, they are now all set and flying off soon to start their program in the USA!
Working and living overseas can be daunting, and takes preparation, resourcefulness and considerable undertaking, even without the pandemic hovering over us. Kudos to Seng Kai, Matthew, Dominic & Khai Kee who, through their commitment and drive, have set the example for current and future Malaysian students to seize the opportunity for an meaningful cultural exchange experience in this post-COVID era.
