Exchange Student Needs Host Family


I am contacting you because I am looking for a host for a student from Thailand. She is 16 years old and likes math and competes in competitions. She will be a high school foreign exchange student for the 2016-2017 school year. I am wondering if you would forward the information about the opportunity to host her to anyone you think may be a potential host?

Natsamon, whose nickname is "Earn," is a 16-year-old girl from Thailand. She participates in the school swim team and math competitions; she also plays piano and occasionally plays it on stage at school. Earn's other hobbies include listening to music, watching movies, knitting, bicycling, jogging, volleyball, and photography. She hopes to explore art museums and theater with her host family and participate in community volunteer activities during her exchange.

Earn describes herself as being friendly, open-minded, studious, responsible, and polite. Her teachers describe her as bright, attentive, and diligent.

Earn lives with her mother and father and has one younger brother. Her father is a manager and her mother is a housewife. Earn has dogs and can live in a home with pets. She has no allergies to pets. She has no dietary restrictions.

Earn's favorite school subjects are math, physics, PE. She would like to study finance at university in the future. Her native language is Thai; she has been studying English for 9 years and Chinese for 1 year.

Hosts provide meals and a room with a separate bed. The room can be shared with a sibling of the same gender and approximately the same age. Earn will have spending money and health insurance, and will attend high school where the host family lives. She will arrive about a week before school starts and will return about a week after school is over.

Please share my contact information with anyone who may have some interest in hosting Earn.
