About a Boy from Uzbekistan

From my inbox:
Subject: About a Boy from Uzbekistan who has won awards in Chess

Hello Mr. Wilson... my name is Debra and I am a Regional Director for a non-profit organization called AYUSA ( I live in Fort Bend County and work with foreign exchange students within a 120 mile radius. One primary responsibility I have is matching volunteer host families with foreign exchange students. These students always come equipped with their own spending money, health insurance and a strong command of the English language. They attend whatever high school their respective volunteer host family is zoned for.

At the moment, I am hoping you can help me network within your circles and spread the word about this fabulous young man from Uzbekistan who will be here on a scholarship. His name is Sanjarbek and he is 16 years old. He will be here from August 2008 thru May 2009 and we are seeking a volunteer host family to house him for that duration. Basically volunteer families provide room/board and integrate them into their normal routines. Perhaps you could put a diddy about him on your blog.

Our Chess Star "Sanjarbek" is very sporty and makes friends easily. He enjoys playing chess with his father and grandfather, as well as playing sports with his friends. He is a very talented athlete, and has even won awards for Tae Kwon Do and swimming. He has also won awards for his talent in drawing, physics, and chess. The person who interviewed him stated Sanjarbek is very open, honest, and curious. He adapts easily to new situations, and is very sociable, so he should easily make new friends at school. He is excited to meet new friends, form a long lasting relationship with his host family, and hopes to learn how to cook some American meals! Sanjarbek does not have pets of his own at home, but is open to living with a family that has dogs. His English teacher commented that he is a purposeful, conscientious, and responsible student. He already has a good command of the English language, and has a lot of potential in mastering foreign languages. Sanjarbek is unsure of what field he wants to go into. He wants to continue to learn about himself and the world and stay active while he decides his career path. If anyone has any questions about the program or the organization or is perhaps interested in hosting this young man - please contact me directly. Thanks - Debra 281-937-0344 or ayusa4u [at] gmail [dot] com (the non-profit organization's website is
