What is your favorite travel memory?

I visited Peru with my girlfriend and it was an amazing experience. The people of Peru are really friendly and the places I visited there were incredible. It's one of the most interesting countries in South America. I would recommend that to everyone who visits Argentina because Peru is close and really cheap to get from here.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Working at Road2 Argentina has been an enriching experience for me. I've spent a lot of time with international students and travelers from all over the world. Doing that, I've learned a lot about other countries and cultures. Meeting new people and making new friends is what I like the most about my work.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

Since I contact and talk to every one of the students of our program, I've heard a lot of stories and we receive reviews all the time. The best one was from a student (Eleanor) from the UK. She loved the program so much that right now she is making preparations to come back and work with us at the company. She really understood our values and she shares the passion that we have.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would definitely do the internship program. We offer a reach variety of fields and placements. That is the best program that we have. Not only a good fit would be found for me, but also I really enjoyed doing the weekly events that Road2 organize with all the students that are currently doing the programs.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

What makes our company unique is the personalized attention that we offer. Road2Argentina offers 24/7 support to all the students in our programs. Moreover, we spent a lot of time with them doing Weekly Group Activities. That is a huge part of our program and we really care about offering the best experience for them.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

The biggest factor in being a successful company is that we have fun doing our work. We really enjoy and love to do what we do. As we really like working here, the students at our program can tell and see that the experience is real and genuine. That is what really makes the difference and what makes our program unique.
