Engaged Global Citizenship






Engaged Global Citizenship



Come explore off the beaten path Fiji with us! We will be staying in a beautiful eco resort that has received the hard earned STOKE Certification for its commitment to sustainable practices. You will love sleeping in the jungle with the sounds of nature and waves right out your window in structures that were built with materials right from the land.  We will explore the surrounding local waves and well as the  rich culture that Fiji has to offer. Kava ceremonies, reed weaving, snorkeling, fishing and empty beaches. During this 2 credit college level course, students will be examining what it means to be a Global Citizen. We will be engaged in the local community through volunteering with the nearby village’s local school as well as work with a reforestation project in the mangroves. This is an incredible opportunity to earn college credit and have an amazing experience to share during college entrance essays and interviews. With ample time for surfing each day, Fiji will prove to be the best classroom you ever step foot in!

Sarah Hughen


Sarah Hughen was born in rural Wisconsin. Her upbringing was deeply rooted in nature, and this draw to wild places has led her all over the world.  A desire to connect, and not merely move through places found her on numerous extended expeditions including a 100 day kayak and first ascent mountaineering trip in Southern Patagonia, a 90 day paddle across Northern Canada, and a photography expedition down the Mackenzie River for 1,000 miles documenting local villages in the Arctic.  Sarah received a formal Degree in photography from Montana State, and currently lives in Cardiff-by-the-Sea with her husband of 10 years and two young boys Oliver and Evan. Living in Cardiff Sarah made a deep connection to the wilderness and lessons that surfing brings, and is hopelessly addicted. Her most recent project (A Wave A Day) involved an awareness campaign for breast cancer in which she vowed to surf every single day for a year, and document her inspiring personal challenge. Founding SeaState is a natural extension of Sarah’s immense field experience and deep rooted passion for responsible travel and the life altering experiences it can bring for all.
