        Brooke,
        Is there a college in your hometown or nearby. It there is, see if there is an international office and have your teacher, or whoever is requiring this interview, contact the international office and find out if anyone of the international students might be interested. If this is for your mom, then she can contact the international office. But asking these questions on the computer, particularly in a public forum, is not wise. Hope this helps.

        If you need further assistance, PM me.
