It was another beautiful day for the IYLA.

We kicked off the day at the U.S. State Department. Della Hareland, Angela Woods, and Mark Azua welcomed us. They gave us information about internships and diplomat positions at the State Department.

Angela Woods, who works in the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs, emphasized the importance of learning new languages and culture abroad and bringing that knowledge back. This kind of knowledge is only powerful when people continue to utilize it at home. How we use the knowledge when we return how determines the success of what we’ve learned.
