Before they leave for Amherst, Pakistan students meet the U.S. ambassador
From the website of the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan:
U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Donald Blome met with a group of 44 students from across Pakistan to congratulate them on their imminent departure for the United States to attend the Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Student Leaders program, funded by the U.S. Department of State. Participants will attend an academic program on comparative public policymaking, exploring issues of public policy and democracy in the United States and comparing U.S. policy development with that of Pakistan. Together, Pakistani and American undergraduate students will examine issues such as civil rights, food security, environmental policy, and democracy. The program will take place at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts.
Upon arrival to Amherst, one participant gushed, "Ambassador Blome hasn't even met the Pakistan prime minister yet. He met us first!"
