New to the Community Center? Introduce yourself here โ€Œ๐Ÿ‘‡

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to the Community Center! ๐Ÿ‘‹  I'm @Bhumika , one of the Community Managers for our English Community Center along with my lovely team members @Quincy @Paula @Rebecca  and @Sophia and we are thrilled to have you join us.

Let's kickstart this thread with a little about us Community Managers:

@Quincy : I'm from the Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ I have been on the Community Center for 6+ years, and have been an Airbnb Host myself. I love cycling๐Ÿšฒ, playing footballโšฝ, and travelling๐ŸŒ . I love how dynamic and diverse the Community Center is as we meet Hosts from all around the globe. 

@Bhumika ๐ŸŒ I was born in Gujarat, India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ , and shifted to Toronto, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ last year! ๐Ÿ“ท I recently realized my love for photography and aesthetics. I love to capture mundane life and candid pictures. ๐ŸŒ† When I'm not working, you'll find me binge-watching thriller movies or exploring history.

@Paula : I am from Colombia ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด and currently living in British Columbia, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. I have a passion for Latin American culture (I love to dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ) . I've had the opportunity to visit around 20 countries ๐ŸŒŽ and plan to visit many more. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities, especially mountain biking ๐Ÿšฒ and hiking ๐Ÿ”.

@Sophia : Born and bred in the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง but my roots are Bangladeshi ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ. I love cats ๐Ÿฑ, enjoy eating crisps (also known as chips) and enjoy baking ๐Ÿช. I also love travelling โœˆ๏ธ  I have worked in Community ever since I graduated and to put it lightly, people are my passion! ๐Ÿ’–

@Rebecca : I'm from Cardiff in Wales originally but being a military child and a veterans spouse, I've travelled and lived in a lot of different places in the UK and Europe. I'm an environmentalist ๐ŸŒฟ and like to minimise my impact on the planet ๐ŸŒŽ as well as volunteering in my local community.  I love sea swimming ๐ŸŒŠ yoga on the beach ๐Ÿง˜โ€ and I'm a children's yoga instructor too! ๐Ÿ™Œ 

Now it's your turn! Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? And is there something special about the location of your accommodation that you'd like to share?

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Warm regards,

Bhumika

I am from Louisiana but currently live in Idaho. At a young age my family moved to Laon France until I was 6 years old. We traveled to many places in Europe and I am look forward to going back again some day! 

Iโ€™m currently co-hosting a beautiful Victorian home in Idaho with my son and his wife. I absolutely enjoy doing this and meeting people from all over the US and many other places from around the word. It is a very rewarding experience. 

I have recently realized how helpful the Air BnB community is and I am excited about being a member of this group. Thank You all in Advance for the helpful information that you all post and I hope I can be as helpful to you!

Hi @Richard3119, I hope you're well. Do you have many fond memories of living in France? I'm happy to hear that you're finding it a rewarding experience, Hosting is very unique and personal as you're opening up your home to people ๐Ÿค—

Hi guys,

 

I'm Rodney from Johannesburg.

 

I am in the process of convincing the Body corp of the 2 flats in Johannesburg that I already own to let me go ahead and Airbnb them.

 

This was not something I'd anticipated. Petty jealousy from other owners disguised as "security concerns". 

 

I am confident that I will prevail, however. 

 

Wish me luck and it's great to have a community of like-minded people to interact with.

 

Cheers

Best of luck with getting that sorted out. If you was wondering if any fellow Hosts have gone through a similar experience, feel free to start a conversation about it here

Best wishes,

I'm from Brazil but live in Utah, US which is known for the ski resorts and great snow. I'm a pediatric physical therapist and love gardening. I'm trying renting my basement through airbnb to see if that works. Fingers crossed. I want to have the flexibility of having the place available when I need it as well.
