Our 17 year old daughter will be attending NZ School of Tourism and moving down from HB for the semester. She is happy to cook her own meals too. Would make us feel more comfortable if she was with a nice family who would keep an eye out for her while she makes her first move away from home. She is very independent, clean and helpful around the house. She loves animals (we have a cat & dog). She is happy with her own company but also likes to have company and is a good communicator.
