Hosting exchange students grows families, cultural understanding

People who have hosted exchange students say that they become a part of the family and it’s a great way to learn about a new culture. 

Dina Pelham of Adrian hosted Margherita Montina from Italy and Raquel Gonzalez of Spain last year. Both students were 17 at the time and came from the Educatius program, which has branches throughout Michigan and the country.  

“It was absolutely wonderful. We were very compatible. The girls were very disciplined and smart and funny and very well-rounded, well educated. They both were involved in after-school activities. They both were in competitive cheer, sideline cheer. Raquel played soccer. We just got along as a family,” Pelham, who hosted for the first time this year, said. “It’s something that I always thought that I’d love to do and when given the opportunity, I decided that that would be a perfect situation for me at the time. It was just the right time in my life, and I guess they needed a mom.”
