When you're open to new experiences, sometimes you win big.

When we interviewed Ruby we couldn't help but have a bunch of song lyrics ringing through our heads. Ruby Love (Cat Stevens) and Ruby Tuesday (the Stones, of course), to name just two. It’s such a lovely name; and Ruby is such a charming girl. She was soft spoken, but with a fierce curiosity about the world, and a wholesome and welcoming spirit.

When we talked to Ruby she was getting ready to welcome a foreign exchange student into her life; a 13-year old girl from South Korea that her family would take in for the summer. Ruby had plans to teach that new friend all about WI, and to learn about other parts of the world in return. Seems like a pretty fair trade. :)
