BLYTHE - Marie Smith, a Felix J. Appleby Elementary School student, will travel to Washington D.C. to participate in a People to People Leadership Forum.
Smith, along with fellow students from around the world, tour the United States Capitol and learn about the branches of government.
Throughout the course of the program in Washington D.C., Smith will learn about leadership and how iconic leaders throughout history have handled world events. Various hands-on activities, relevant professional speakers, small-group workshops, and visits to significant memorials, museums, and monuments will provide Smith with insights on the importance and essential need for informed and inspired world leaders.
"I am most excited about visiting The Capitol and different monuments. I am so excited that I will have the opportunity to visit the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia," said Smith.
The People to People World Leadership Forum exposes students to a blend of specialized educational, leadership, and cultural examples through a variety of programs.
Participants in People to People World Leadership Forums often experience life-changing shifts in their attitudes toward personal responsibility, global leadership, and cultural diversity, returning home with enhanced leadership skills and self-confidence.
Congratulations Marie !! What a great opportunity !! Reach for the stars !!
