I am Lisa, student of politics from Bonn, and I’m studying one year abroad in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since I live her, I realized how different Americans are, and how the people and the country frequently surprise me. “Ambassadors in Sneakers” is so much fun and is a great opportunity to convey a personal image of Germany in a group of young people, and to reflect about what is new, different, unexpected, special, and similar- on both sides. In addition, the work and organization within the group with the other “ambassadors,” the cooperation with the school as well as the visits in the classes in Santa Fe are exciting, funny, and informative. Those who get the chance to participate should definitely grab the chance!
