Host an International Student
Cabrini High School is looking for amazing host families and we need your help today. Please pray and consider whether this is an opportunity for you to open up your heart and home. Please consider helping
My name is Megan Pierrel. My family has hosted exchange students at Cabrini High School for 2 years now and cannot say enough about our experience. In fact, it is this experience that encouraged me to do more. I am now working for a student exchange organization (PSE) that helps international teens study here at Cabrini. These students need an American family to welcome them into their home for the 2017/18 school year. I am asking for your assistance in finding homes for the following students:
Xuechun is a 16-year-old female from Urumqi, China. She will be a Junior at Cabrini. She has been an exchange student in Arizona since August 2016. Xuechun is an only child who lost her father to an accident when she was seven. She enjoys art and photography. Her goal is to deepen her understanding of English and the American culture. She would like to attend college in the United States to study business.
Yiru is a 17-year-old female from Urumqi, China. She will be a Junior at Cabrini. She has been an exchange student in Minnesota since September 2015. Yiru is an only child. She enjoys playing basketball as well as camping, photography, and playing the piano. Her goals are to live with a new family in a new environment and to improve her English.
Wenjing is a 15-year-old female from Beijing, China. This will be her first year as an exchange student and she will be a sophomore at Cabrini. Wenjing has one younger sister and prefers host siblings. She enjoys reading, writing, visiting museums, travel, and cooking. In China, she is part of the drama and robotics clubs. Her goal is to enhance her English skills as well as view the American world she has studied for several years.
The basic things required to host a student include: a bed, transportation to school, and 3 meals a day. A monthly stipend is provided to assist with these expenses.
Students have health/dental coverage, spending money, and pay for any vacations themselves.
Please consider opening your heart and your home. Learn a new culture and add a forever friend to your family.
