A former I Am Humboldt story introduced Sarah, a foreign exchange student from Mouscron, Belgium.  Sarah stayed with a local Fortuna family while attending Fortuna Union High School her senior year.

“I am from Mouscron, Belgium. I absolutely loved my experience in Fortuna and I would definitely do it all over again if I could. I was very surprised how people here in the US are friendly and caring, even towards strangers! I feel very grateful that each one of my three host families took me into their lives and loved me as their own daughter. I will never forget this incredible adventure and I will come back to visit soon for sure! It’s not a year in a life, but a life in year.”

The I Am Humboldt crew is always looking for new faces to photograph and stories to tell.  Know someone with a positive tale to tell?  Please message them on their page.
