IENA has two YouTube stars on our Summer Work Travel program this winter!
MariaPaz and MariaFe are identical twins from Lima, Peru. (Don’t ask us who’s who in the photos!) They live in upstate New York, home to the famous Adirondack Park and Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort. They are working in hospitality for the resort.
MariaFe says: “I went to New York City for two days and I saw many places, like Madison Square Garden, the Brooklyn Bridge, and 911 memorial. It a was a dream. Times Square was crazy looks like the movies.
Here in Lake Placid I went to the cinema, bowling, ice skating and I’m practicing snowboard on my days off. I’m in love with this place! It was my first time seeing snow, and it was magical.
My job is going so well. I made good friends and I’m trying many new activities. My roomies are so united it’s like a family. I feel like at home and I know they and I will be a friends for life. We have a lot of fun here in Lake Placid.”
Lake Placid was home to the 1980 Olympics and is known for its snow sports and other outdoor recreation. Learn more about it on the official tourism website, Visit Lake Placid
