  1. This is a good advertisement and we need to see more of this on television, as the general public is simply unaware of the concept of citizen diplomats or the fact that they could host a student from a foreign country. This is the first time I have gone blogging and I am doing it to complete an assignment, but we do have a spare room and I would really enjoy hosting a young man from another part of the world who is pursuing a higher education degree. What a fantastic experience for both of us. I hope that more people in the general popuation become aware of this program.

    I really like the idea of a student realizing that they are a citizen diplomat. Upon seeing this ad, I ran and put my son right in front of the screen and explained, "this could be you" in a year or two, as he is only 18 and not quite ready to leave the nest. But, it was helpful in showing him that there is a great big world out there and to not take advantage of these type of opportunities is a huge mistake, and one that I am hoping that he move on in the near future.
