Freeport firefighter lives the American dream
Moving to the United States was always a dream of Natascha Hennen, 36, of Freeport.
“I liked what the county stands for: Freedom, opportunity and open spaces,” she said.
Hennen was born in and grew up in Muttenz, Switzerland. Since her hometown was only about five minutes away from the border to Germany and about 10 minutes from the French border, she learned a few more languages. She is fluent in Swiss, German, English and Spanish.
Even though she may not use her language skills on a daily basis, Hennen said it has come in handy when needed.
“I like to meet new people, strike up a conversation and just learn more about them,” she said.
