Tim likes to spend time with his friends, going to the movies or swimming. He is also very interested in economic and history, those are his favorite subjects.

  1. Wow! Thank you for adding my Life Lessons (whattheworldtaughtme) blog to your Related Articles section. What you do is amazing for everyone involved.

    Exchange students are very special to me- I was an Exchange Mom in Houston, twice, and as a expat in Azerbaijan, I helped with the Pre-Departure Orientation each summer for approximately 100 students. Great memories all around. I am still in touch with our students.

    Please reach out if you have any questions or I can be of any help in what you do! Good luck!

      • Ah, Amy, you read my mind! Will do!

        (I confess, I’m trying to figure out how to talk my new husband into an adventure like this! I loved my times, and I think he might too, but it’s a big step for someone who has never thought about things like that before.)
