Exchange student grateful for hospitality

Dear readers, my name is Sarra and I am an AFS exchange student from Tunisia living in Kasilof with the Nelsons. I would like you to know that hosting students or sending your own children on a foreign exchange is a great way to learn about the world, have fun and share life lasting memories. The benefits of hosting kids are countless. As I think about going home in June I would like to dedicate this letter as proof of my appreciation to all the amazing people who have made my exchange year possible but especially my host mom Kerry Nelson who has been a great mother and friend to me thank you Kerry and happy mothers day.

If you are interested in learning more about hosting visit or see the AFS Alaska webpage at I promise that all the volunteers are friendly and would love to talk to you.
