I am 16 years old. I was Miss New York Junior Teen in 2012. My parents allow me to use our family home for my AirBnB business. I use the proceeds of the business to pay my tuition at a private girls' prep school, where I am an honor student and to fund my pageant activities as well as modeling and acting endeavors, an exchange trip to Spain, and more.
I've been told I'm AirBnB's youngest host. There will soon be a large portrait of me and a few other interesting hosts hanging in the new AirBnB headquarters in San Francisco. My profile photo is one of the pictures that was taken during the photoshoot for this portrait.
My father, John Howell, has a little business on the side giving private tours of the area to our guests, and transportation, when needed. He charges a cash fee for these services. His fees for transportation are a little less than taxi cab fare, and you don't have to tip him. Many of our guests traveling by air, train, or bus, have appreciated the convenience of his help with rides to and from the airport, train stations or bus terminal. He is also often asked to take guests to Niagara Falls, or to provide a personal insider tour of Buffalo. His fees for all of this are reasonable and he knows a lot about Buffalo's history and factoids you'd like to know.
My father is also a novelist, and you can get an autographed copy of one of his books if you want one.
