Meet Nook! Nook is such an adventurous young lady with a lot of great interests! She loves to get outside for a hike, she plays many different kinds of sports, plays the drums and sings, and has so many future career ambitions. She hasn’t decide what she wants to do when she grows up yet but she is thinking about maybe being an engineer, a film director, or even to open a restaurant overseas. She loves animals and has both a dog and a cat at home. She is so motivated and describes herself as a brave person who wants to experience as much as possible during her exchange year. She loves little kids and says she is so great with kids because of how kind she is. When she has free time from hiking, music, playing sports, and hanging out with kids and animals Nook likes to watch action and comedy movies.

"Leander is highly respected by his peers and is supportive of them at all times" This was only one of the wonderful things that Leander's teachers had to say about him and having him in class. Kind, family oriented, active, and supportive are all great ways to describe this amazing student! He spends much time with his family and really enjoys being an older brother! One thing that Leander and his family enjoy doing together is being outdoors and hiking. The best part is that Leander and his two sisters get to plan the whole trip each time. Leander is a lover of animals and hopes that his new host family will have some for him to spend his year with! Another thing that Leander is passionate about and really loves doing is taking dancing classes with his friends! Will you host this one of a kind student and welcome him into your family?
