>I work for a nonprofit organization that designs educational

>year. We place these students in communities throughout the U.S.
>We have a student arriving in late January named Effy from Malaysia
>who is visually impaired. She wants to be a clinical psychologist
>and enjoys a wide range of activities including debate, foreign
>films, singing, acting, track and field, swimming, and camping. Her
>exchange program, the YES Program, is sponsored by the U.S.
>Department of State, which means Effy underwent a rigorous screening
>and application process-the acceptance rate for the program is only
>3% out of tens of thousands of applicants.
>We are hoping to spread information about Effy to people who may be
>interested in hosting her to give her the full American experience!
>If you feel this is something that may interest your group, I would
>be pleased to speak with you further and provide additional
>information about this student.
