Brayden with current host sisters Maria from Spain and Mim from Thailand

When you host an exchange student, you gain a new family member. No one knows this better than six-year-old Brayden Daugherty.

When Brayden was recently assigned a school project to make a family tree he said, “Mom, make sure you print pictures of all of my sisters to put on there!” Brayden’s ‘sisters’ some of the many exchange students that the family has hosted since 2015. Brayden loves each and every one and will forever consider them family.

Brayden’s large international family is a great example of how hosting an exchange student can positively impact a child’s life.
