From Iraq to Virginia! 🇮🇶➡️🇺🇸
Through DreamWakers' partnership with the U.S. State Department’s Office of Public Affairs, Foreign Service Officer Dan Mehring—who is currently serving in Baghdad, Iraq—visited with #DreamTeacher Valencia Angles' class at Graham Middle School in Richlands, Virginia last fall. After a positive first flashchat experience, Dan offered to host a second, not online, but in person!
On April 4, he drove six hours from D.C. to meet Ms. Angles’ #DreamStudents to speak with them face-to-face about his role as a diplomat representing the United States in 36 different countries, the unique experiences he's had traveling the world (like eating African snails 🐌 and discussing soccer ⚽️ with the Pope!), and how students could begin now to pursue careers in public service.
We LOVE doing our part to connect classrooms to a world of new careers! ✨👍🏽🌏
