She lived with a host family with two children, one of them sixteen years old, too. Maellis and her host family were supported by the Elena-Bleß Foundation. The Foundation supports pupils’ work placements abroad with scholarships for travelling and staying. Maellis was informed about the work of the Foundation by her teacher in France.
