Hi my name is Cindy and I’m hosting an
international student at South Puget Sound Community College. I decided to
host an international student because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do
since my junior year in college when I worked at an international office. But
you really don’t need any special background to do it and it’s just a lot
of fun. It really is an adventure for both parties because things that you
might consider mundane or take for granted, really when you share those with
someone who hasn’t experienced it it’s it just takes on a new appeal. My student
is from Shanghai she’s a little bit of an older student but you know she’s
independent she’s- her English is very good.
She enjoys, you know, learning new experiences especially learning more
about American culture and she’s just very very friendly and easy to get along
with and I just love her. You know sometimes you get locked into this
thinking that you know it has to be the right time or the perfect time but
really if you just go for it you won’t regret it. It’s a lot of fun and I just
say you know go forward and apply and it’ll be a lot of fun.
