Hi!
 
My name is Cora Boyd, I'm 22 years old and I went to a Waldorf school in the Washington, DC area (The Washington Waldorf School) from when I was 3 to 18.
 
In May I will graduate from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana with  a BA in English literature (with an emphasis on creative writing), and Spanish language.  After graduation I am going to travel around Europe for several months. 
 
I am looking for a family to stay with for a few weeks in the months of September in  exchange for any help or skills I can offer to the host family.  Skills and help I can offer include: childcare, lessons for parents or children in creative writing, lessons in Spanish language (I am fluent), crafts (especially like calligraphy, crocheting, sewing and drawing), cooking, and cleaning.
 
In high school was an exchange student in a Waldorf school in Santiago, Chile for three months, and when I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina for a semester, I did some work with the Waldorf school there. 

I am continually impressed with the opportunities for connection that the international Waldorf community provides and I am always interested to meet other Waldorf students and families from around the world to compare and contrast my own Waldorf experience with theirs. I am very easy going and I love to meet new people and have new experiences. 
 
If anyone is interested in hosting me for a few weeks, please email cboyd1@tulane.edu.  I am happy to Skype with anyone or otherwise provide more information about myself.
