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

Hello @Anmol17 and welcome to the Airbnb Community Center ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

In our community, there's a fantastic board titled ๐Ÿ‘‰Ask About Your Listing, where both new and experienced Hosts come together to share tips on enhancing their listings through ๐Ÿ‘‰Critique My Listing threads. Would you be interested in joining this initiative?

 

All the best,

Hello I am Bella, Iโ€™m new to the community. Actually Iโ€™m a new host all of 3 months. So far Iโ€™m enjoying it. Thereโ€™s so much involved in being a good host, and that is why I joined the community. I donโ€™t know it all.. Iโ€™m looking forward to the conversations from more seasoned host and hopefully I can add some insight as well. 

Welcome @Estralletta0. I'm still kind of new myself. I started my airbnb last year and may so. I'm coming up on my 1 year anniversary. It's been a great experience. Definitely a new chapter for me and my husband we're enjoying it. I'd like it but it's better than renting.  

Thank you for the nice welcome

Welcome @Estralletta0, you are sure to find and learn a lot of useful information here in the community.  As well as making some new acquaintances.

Hello my name is Sharine Johnson and I am new to Airbnb. I am from The Nassau, Bahamas.

Hi!

I am Mariya . I am in Raleigh NC and just listed my first property - a townhouse near downtown! I am getting overwhelmed at the amount of work it takes to set up. Furniture and big things are easy but  then the small things that add personal touch to a place.. that's what's keeping me up. I would appreciate any insights..specially your fears as you entered this space for the first time. I am getting ready to host for the first time (next week!) and want to cover anything that could possibly go wrong. Would appreciate any advice!

Hey there @Mariya80, that's a really great question! I would highly recommend that you create a post asking this question to the wider community here. By doing this you can get more visibility on your post and people can share their experiences ๐Ÿ˜Š
