Get Nelly to the US!

Nelly is my host mom in Costa Rica. She has had a dream of visiting the US for many years. She started taking in students five years ago and has had 23 students live with her during this time. She is also the cooking teacher for our program (lucky me) and every student in the group knows and loves her. Everytime I leave the house with Nelly I feel famous, she has so many friends and calls everyone “her love, her queens/princesses, her children”. I am unbelievably fortunate for living with such an amazing, loving woman. I want to make her dream come true of going to the US, as she made mine in Costa Rica.
