New to the Community Center? Introduce yourself here ‌👇

Hello everyone! 😊

Welcome to the Community Center! 👋  I'm @Bhumika , one of the Community Managers for our English Community Center along with my lovely team members @Quincy @Paula and @Rebecca   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 🇳🇱 I have been on the Community Center for 6+ years, and have been an Airbnb Host myself. I love cycling🚲, playing football, and travelling🌏 . I love how dynamic and diverse the Community Center is as we meet Hosts from all around the globe. 

@Bhumika 🌍 I was born in Gujarat, India 🇮🇳 , and shifted to Toronto, Canada 🇨🇦 last year! 📷 I recently realized my love for photography and aesthetics. I love to capture mundane life and candid pictures. 🌆 When I'm not working, you'll find me binge-watching thriller movies or exploring history.

@Paula : I am from Colombia 🇨🇴 and currently living in British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦. I have a passion for Latin American culture (I love to dance 💃) . I've had the opportunity to visit around 20 countries 🌎 and plan to visit many more. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities, especially mountain biking 🚲 and hiking 🏔.

@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 🌿 and like to minimise my impact on the planet 🌎 as well as volunteering in my local community.  I love sea swimming 🌊 yoga on the beach 🧘‍ and I'm a children's yoga instructor too! 🙌 

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

Hi @Refeekh0 ! Welcome to the Community and it is so great to hear from you😍

How are you managing Hosting in Kerala while residing at California? Do you have a Co-Host or a family member who manages your listing for you?

On a side note, I have been to Kerala and truly it is one of beautiful states I have visited! Such scenic beauty🌴 .

Thank you for your lovely introduction @Sri311 !! We are so glad to see you here in our Community Center!🤗

 

I am wondering, is it easy to manage guest expectations while you are actively working other than Hosting? How do you often balance both the worlds? Do you have any tips or suggestions for newer Hosts? 😍

Hi Bhumika,

 

Thanks for your kind words.  I work from home, so I can manage both working and hosting. If I work at the office every day like we used to, it will be hard. Thank God, now we have the flexibility to work remotely.

 

I think for the new host, take the experience as a learning lesson.  We learn every day to become a better host.

Love the enthusiasm I could read in your comment @Adnan111 !! I hope the upcoming years are as fulfilling and enriching for you, allowing you to continue exploring and appreciating different cultures through hosting.😍

Is there any specific guest experience, where you felt really glad to have started Hosting?

(Meeting people from different cultures adds so much value and perspectives in one's life!!)
