About the Homestay
Hi, we are the Mickens. We look forward to hosting this year. We are a Christian family. A few years back, we have hosted our son, Paul, from China. We enjoyed the experience. We are a family of 4. We have 2 sons. One is in college and the other will be going to high school this year. Our family enjoys sports. We live in a community with several pools, a club house with a gym, and bike trails. As a host mom, I am a former teacher and current entrepreneur. Your host dad, has electrical engineer degree and is an IT professional and an entrepreneur. Our oldest son is majoring in computer science. We attached our picture with our former host child. Our sons are older and taller now.
