Host Family Spotlight

Hernandez Family

Host Family

We love hearing about host families that have FUN with the students they host.  The Hernandez family exemplifies this trait by the way they play basketball, tell jokes, cook together, and take interest in their student’s academic and social lives. The healthy home environment that the Hernandez family has created, has helped their two students from China who attend San Joaquin Memorial High School thrive while studying in America! Both students have made honor roll at San Joaquin Memorial, and are making good friends. Oscar is also known to frequently play his saxophone for the Hernandez family in the evenings! It’s awesome to see Vikki and Tim making lasting memories with their students!

This is my first time coming to America. I feel very wonderful.  The scenery is beautiful and the sky is clear. I live close to Pismo Beach.  My homestay family is friendly.  They will take me to play every week.  The school has many activities and a robotics class. It has improved my vision of the world.  After class, I always participate in conversations with students.  This is my great life.
