as much with students from the country you’re visiting. I did what was odd at the time, and didn’t live in an apartment with other American students. I moved to a residencia and really got to know the Spanish students. I had a Spanish roommate, and later, her family came to the states and visited with my family.” The trips, she says, set her on a path toward diplomacy. She joined the Clinton campaign in 1992, as special assistant to Hilary Rodham Clinton, and served as special assistant to the First Lady when the Clintons moved into the White House. She continued working in government until 2009, when she was appointed Chief of Protocol to the United States. There, she works with other governments and U.S. officials to foster an environment conducive to successful diplomacy. One of her favorite duties is welcoming visitors from other countries, including students. “We had a group of students visiting from India recently,” she says. “We had this great conversation about cricket and how it’s different from baseball—the flat bat, the different rules—and talked about what’s great about India and what’s great about America. That kind of exchange is truly diplomacy at its best. And that’s what I learned so well when I studied abroad—how to engage, how to learn more about other people, how to understand cultural differences. That’s really the

basis and the framework of what we do here in the Office of Protocol.” “I feel very at home in the Office of Protocol due to these experiences I had when I studied abroad,” she continues. “I brought to this position my aptitude for and desire to learn more about the people from around the world. We noted the importance of teaching young people about people from different parts of the world, and we’ve implemented a new division to do that.” She regularly hosts children from other countries with their U.S. counterparts to share food, music, and traditions of both nations between then. She also encourages students from other nations to visit the United States, and says American students need to be open to travel as well. “I tell them to be open to the opportunities,” she says. “Don’t cut a path for yourself. Be open to opportunities. You never know what might come along, and something like this can take you down a new, exciting road that’s completely different from what you thought.” ie
