Half a world away from her close-knit family and her home in Karachi, Pakistan, Tayyaba Rizvi has found herself warmly welcomed into the busy household of her new ‘mom,’ Bonnie Schutts, and new Kayla, age 11. Rizvi finds Dunn County’s rural landscape and comparatively low population density a marked contrast to the very crowded city of Karachi. Schutts’ large extended family gathers often, giving Rizvi, one of 16 foreign exchange students this year at Menomonie High School, a familiar connection to home and to family life. he remembers how at first she was surprised at ‘how few people are around.’
