Thursday, September 8, 2022 By: Gene Deems
On August 20, Malaika Latif arrived from Jakarta, Indonesia to her host family in Annapolis.  She is enrolled as a junior at Broadneck High School.  She is one of four exchange students at Broadneck this year.  Malaika is an outgoing 17 year old who speaks fluent English.  Her host sister Rachel is happy to help Malaika get acquainted with classmates and experience new activities.   The Parole Rotary Club supplies a monthly stipend and opportunities to join in club activities.  

LOOKING FOR A HOST FAMILY– Be Part of Something Great!

Malaika will be hosted by 3 different families during her year in Annapolis.  Each family hosts for 3 ½ months.  She is currently living with the Spitzer family.   

Hosting a Rotary International high school exchange student is a life-enhancing experience for your entire family.  It’s a unique opportunity to get new perspectives, explore new customs, and share American culture and your community with others.  Most of all, you’ll build special friendships and connections that often last a lifetime. 

What to Expect:

  • Exchange students are  involved with your family, school, and Rotary events.
  • Host families must live in the Broadneck High School area.  They  provide room, board, and school transportation, while Rotary provides a monthly stipend. 
  • Students are thoroughly screened and arrive with spending money and full insurance.
