“I got to spend the summer in LA. I had never been there before. I also got to live on UCLA's campus for free and a meal plan was provided. I worked with a variety of students from all over the world. I was like an RA. I had about 15 students who I was responsible for on my floor. Within my group of students I met girls from Lebanon, China, Japan, Greece, Turkey, London, and from different states in the US. Even the staff was diverse. It was great getting to work with people from all over in LA. I got to see and experience all over LA at this job. I went to 5 different beaches, I tried surfing, I went to Universal Studios, 6 Flags, Disneyland, LA Galaxy game, Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the list goes on. Not to mention these experiences are completely covered by the camp. I could probably write a whole paper about everything I got to experience through this summer job. ”
