I'm Olivia Clarkson, a film student from England studying at Leeds University. Before I moved up north, I went to St Aldates in Oxford, helping out with the youth programme and found it so rewarding.

Next year in Feb I have the opportunity to partake in an internship in L.A, and I was wondering if you had any schemes to house exchange students? I can pay for all my food e.t.c, and chip in for gas and water. The placement can be up to 6 weeks.
