About

CIEE (Council on International Educational Exchange), the world leader in international exchange, is looking for families in Adrian to host one of our international high school students for one or two semesters during the upcoming school year. Host families come in all shapes and sizes -- kids, no kids, empty nesters, single parents, etc. In return for hosting, families learn about a different culture, enjoy lifelong friendships with students, fulfill the dream of a young person, and become global ambassadors in their own communities!

The following students will be attending Adrian High School during the 2016-2017 school year:

Moustafa is an 18 year old boy from Egypt!

I want to be a successful man. I am a helpful person. I am a quiet person. I love laughing and everybody says that the good things on me is that I can turn a bad situation into a good. I am the best and most dynamic worker at my school. I like playing volleyball. In my free time I like watching movies and playing mobile games. I love my family more than anything. I have one sister and one brother. I love my sister more than anyone in my family. (F1BRF16506SR)

Abdelhakam is a 16 year old boy from Egypt!

I like to do many activities, first of all I love sports. My favorite sport is soccer and I play it in a club. After my school I spend a lot of time with my family, friends and at the sport field. My favorite subjects in school are sports and history. In my career after the school time I want to study sport medicine or sport journalism. I'm living together with my parents and my little sister. I'm looking forward to my host family. In my free time I go to the movies, meet my friends or ride my bike. I'm always good humored and uncomplicated. Also I have no problems to integrate in a new group or find new friends. (F1BRF16503SR)
