What would it be like to host a student from another country for a whole year? Writer/producer (and volunteer host mom!) Vicki Balint interviewed YES students and their host families for Raising Arizona Kids magazine.

Featured in the video are YES 08-09 students Ankush Wagle from India with his host parents, Jerry and Gwen Budnik, and Liyana Zainuddin from Malaysia with her host mom Joy Baber. Local Coordinator Karen Powers and AFS Egypt National Director Sherifa Fayez also talk about the importance of cultural exchange to the local and global community.
Check out the video below! Many thanks to Karen and Vicki!
