I'm a PhD student from Maldives starting my studies in June/July 2023 at the University of Auckland
Me (36 y) and my husband (42 y) are planning to move to Auckland together. He is also planning to start studying at Manukau Institute of Technology.
We do have characters references from Newzeland citizen x 2 available and guaranteed funding for our term of stay ( from Maldives government). I am lecturer by profession and my husband a engineer. We kind of quiet nerdy people who enjoys walks by the beach, reading and going to movies. I'm a bit scared of dogs and absolutely adore cats ( although I have no plans of having one of my own)
We are hoping to find a kind host, who would friendly and respectful. At home being from a Asian country we have lived with our parents, and are more than happy to stay with an elderly host and to help around a bit with home chores and shopping. We are looking forward to learning Newzleand cultures and happy to share our culture too if they are interested in learning and tasting food.
We are looking for a private room with a bathroom preferably. Otherwise a private room and shared bathroom is good too. Shared kitchen and available to cook food.
