I am a 55 year old fifth grader. In this economy and time finding a job without the required education is impossible. Thanks to Airbnb I have the opportunity to have an income and feel I am part of the economy, pay taxes and feel worth as an individual. I also enjoy welcoming people who embrace this sharing economy and choose to stay with me instead of going into a hotel.
