On December 19, Deputy Public Affairs Officer Joslyn Mack-Wilson and Cultural Assistant Janan Shaikh Abdulla met with recently returned students from the Embassy’s Student Leaders program.

Each student completed six to eight weeks of intensive leadership training in the United States. During the program, the participants developed leadership and collective problem-solving skills and explored U.S. history and culture to expand their leadership skills and knowledge. The program included hands-on leadership training workshops, academic sessions, site visits, community service projects, optional homestays, opportunities for interaction with Americans peers, and other cultural activities.
