Meet one of our hosts

Hello Everyone, I’ve been a host family for the past 7 years. The experience of having international students is remarkable and amazing. Learning about different cultures is a one-of-a-kind experience that no one could ever imagine without trying it. We enjoy so much watching them socialize with our little girls. Having them in our home helps us to teach our children about living in a mixed  society and with  them my kids learn so much about other nationalities and cultures. Our students are part of our family. Once they arrive we always make sure that they feel comfortable right a way. What I also like is I that I can learn about some different and authentic foods from their country and we make it together.  Sincerely,  Ylaine and family
