U.S. Consulate hosts 10 Ural students for Young Diplomats program

Last week, 10 Ural-area school students participated in the U.S. Consulate's Young Diplomats program in Yekaterinburg.

The program consisted of visa interviews, discussion of sister city exchange programs and personal interviews conducted over Skype.

At the conclusion of the program, members of the consulate asked the students to offer their definitions of a diplomat. The consulate was treated to a variety of answers-- from "hardworking" to "a person with a great sense of humor."

The Young Diplomats program is an opportunity for students to learn about the U.S. consulate and its portfolio of diplomatic programs. The consulate invites students interested in participating in the program to contact the agency through its Facebook page.
