Hello

My name is Anne. I am sixteen years old and I live in Germany. I would like to spend a year in an US-American high school and I'm still searching for a host family. It is not that easy for me to find a host family because I am vegetarian (for three years now).
I would not mind if my host family is not vegetarian (my family is not), but many families do not consider to host me because I am.
So now I would like to ask you for your help. And if it is impossible for you to host me, please ask friends or your family because coming to the USA is my biggest dream.
Please send me a message.

Thank you

I'm moving this thread out of the California forum so more people will see it.

Worrying that you are too dysfunctional, crazy cat lady or so?

No no man, no person can complain whilst living with you.

I did a host family thing (I was the hosted, not the hoster, if that makes sense) and my host family was a single woman living alone. You might want to Google host families in the US, and ask your school's principal about spending the year abroad. Good luck.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
