Homestay and Boarding School

10/27/2021
For many of us, the immigration experience is linked through our family - either someone in the family immigrated first or we immigrated alongside our parent. But for a lot of us, immigrating was more of an independent adventure! Today we bring on our friend who has been through both a homestay and a boarding school, and discuss the differences between the cultural experience, parenting style, and long term impacts between the two.
