What does it mean to be a host sister? Or a host brother? It means something different in every family. Some host sisters introduce their PAX students to their friends, school, and life as an American teenager. Other host sisters give their exchange students the experience of having a younger sibling for the first time. Our students and their host sisters write to us with stories of finding the perfect gift, learning to say “host sister” in a new language, and what it’s like to welcome a new family member from across the world into your life.
