My husband and I strive to be informed and welcoming citizen diplomats and have been very impressed with the community involvement that the World Affairs Council offers to ensure and foster the knowledge, exposure and opportunity to do so in our local schools, business communities and public at large. My children delight in the exposure to different cultures, ways of thinking and languages. I like knowing that as an organization, we’re making a meaningful impact at home and abroad.”
