  1. From Patti Gorman: I am working with a mature 18 y.o. student at Seattle Central College who is from Turkmenistan and is looking for a room or small apartment where she can reduce the cost of her rent.  She would be willing to help around your house as part of the compensation. She is smart, upbeat, fun-loving, speaks English well.  If interested, please contact me, Patti, and I will put you two in touch.  rampgk@comcast.net
