MONROE - For high school students, their international exchange experience is not a year in a life, but rather a life in a year. Eva-Maria Mueller from Germany and Mariana de Oliveira from Brazil, 2016-17 AFS exchange students, agree that they packed a lifetime of memories into their time in Monroe. They arrived in Monroe in the fall of 2016 with an open mind, ready to experience a new culture, become part of an American family, attend school and live in a Midwestern town.
