I can’t begin to explain how these stories make me feel incredibly perplexed. I just wrote my weekly opinion piece on remembering the murder of Chinese international student Michelle Leng in Sydney early last year, and now I am writing about another sexual violence case. Well, anyways, here it is.
Orlando man, Joshua Perez has been accused of forcing an exchange student from Vietnam, with whom he was the host father. It has been reported that over a 3 month period, Perez forced the young girl into sexual encounters with him 13 times.
To me this is a disgusting piece of shit which should have never been a host father to begin with. I mean how could they not pick this up in the checks they do? As a host family, your role is to in many respects be the entrusted parents to the exchange students and its clear that Perez has breached this trust. The sad thing about all this is, the Vietnamese international student will now have bad memories of her experience abroad.
