I lived in California until I was 5 years old then I moved to Pennsylvania... which isn't very interesting, and after I graduated high school I moved to Vancouver, Washington and went to school at the International Air and Hospitality Academy, and soon I'll live in Alaska! I want to travel and live everywhere so this is just a start!
I'm Samm and I'm 19. I am going to be living in Healy, Alaska from May to September 2009 and working at Princess Tours Denali National Park Resort as a room attendant!
Last Seasonal Job:
Hollister Co./Altoona, PA ; christmas season... haha
This trip is going to be amazing, but I am going to miss a lot of friends and my family, so I have been running around almost nonstop for the last 4 days to say good bye to everyone I know. Being popular is a gift and a curse.
lol yeah same here. I ended up with my own room and bathroom mid season last year it was much better. And yeah definitely bring your winter coat cause it will probably still be snowing when we get there :)
only one I found was the one I have on my profile with the orange walls lol. That room was the only one like that. The rooms are alot like college dorms. Basically each person wwill have a bed with a drawer under it and a closet. Some of the rooms have two desks, but most have only one. All the rooms have a TV in them but u dont get many channels at all. Thats why if u have a laptop definitely bring it :) Pretty much each wing on each floor has a bathroom which u share with your wing again like a college dorm. It's not that bad once you get used to it lol. Alot of us put up posters and liquor bottles to help give it that homely feel :)
If you always wanted to check out Alaska and you love the outdoors it's awesome! I gotta warn you though Homestead has alot of rules... I had a bunch of friends get fired and kicked off property. The rules are there to keep everyone safe though so it's understandable. For example you will get fired if you're caught drinking while underage at the Homestead my key words being drinking at the Homestead. You'll be fine :) I had alot of fun times there and plan to do the same this time around. If you have a laptop bring it. I would highly recommend u get one if u dont already have one. They have a computer room but last year they had problems with people hogging the room all the time and besides the computers there get trashed. There's wifi in the homestead so I just use my laptop, it's way more convenient. You'll probably see me alot I'll be one of the EDR chefs. If you have anymore questions gimme a hollar :)
