Airbnb serves as a valuable source for generating extra revenue for me. In addition to supplementing my income to help pay for rent and activities, I meet people from around the world and serve as a cultural host to help breakdown perceived barriers regarding Americans. During their stay, I also am able to suggest they dine & visit various local businesses in the WAshington, DC area which helps the local economy. Without Airbnb I would not be able to reside in the city and have such positive experiences with people from all over the globe.
