Mathilde Elvestad now has two countries to call home. The Norway native now refers to America as her second home after having spent nearly an entire year, from August to July, in La Cañada. “I have started preparing myself for going home [to Norway],” said the 18-year old Elvestad, who came to La Cañada through AFS Intercultural Programs. “I’ve tried to picture myself going home, and it’s going to be hard because I have my life back in Norway and my life here.” Since 1919, AFS Intercultural Programs, formerly known as the American Field Service, has been sending people on journeys they will hopefully remember for the rest of their lives.
