And our Instagram Winner is...

August 21, 2017

Congratulations to Berat F. in Eagle River, Wisconsin, for winning this year's Instagram Contest with his photo from the 4th of July! He captioned his photo "Such a fun time with my new family. This was my first 4th of July in America. This family invited me to celebrate together, I spent great time with them as if I was part of their family."

According to Berat, he met Pat and her family at the Country Store of Eagle River. He says Eagle River is a small town, so they saw each other and spoke often. 

"She invited me to join them for the 4th of July. So we came again with them during parade of 4th of July. Then her family and she hosted me for that day."

Berat says he's had a lot of memorable experiences during his Summer Work and Travel program, including a Sunset Dance, playing Yahtzee with his new friends, and celebrating his birthday "American style."

"I can't choose the best memory because each memory is really special for me."
