Tea at the Ambassador's

March, 25 2014

On March, 25 16 best Access students from the new sites: Orhei, Strășeni, Ialoveni and Bender, as well as 5 teachers and 4 teacher assistants had the incredible and unique opportunity to participate at the annual Tea at the Ambassador's Event. The students that took part at this event were chosen as a result of an essay competition that was organized. All the Access students wrote an essay with the topic "How can visiting US Ambassador change/ influence me?" Other criteria of selection were the students' program attendance and learning progress along this year of study. So, 4 best students from each group were selected.

Each Access site had prepared some wonderful handmade presents for the US Ambassador in Moldova, William H. Moser, proving once again that they are very talented and creative. In addition, the students also prepared some very interesting questions for him, and they found out more information about the hobbies, the family and the work of the host. The children were also very curious to learn more details about the path to success of the ambassador.

Moreover, the Access team also had the pleasure to meet Lauren Perlaza- Public Affairs Officer who was pleasantly impressed by the students and promised to visit them. As a feedback to this meeting, Mrs. Perlaza proposed new collaboration between Access Moldova and other US alumni in order to maintain the efficiency of the program and to enhance the students' language and social engagement acquisitions.

The guests were also invited to take a tour of the Ambassador's residence and to see his wonderful collection of modern American paintings as well as the admirable ikebanas he made by himself. The Ambassador encouraged the students to study hard in order to develop themselves and their country. They proved to be very determined to do that and asked him to give them some homework.

The students, teachers and teacher assistants were very impressed by this visit and all of them claimed that they spent a wonderful time. They expressed their gratitude to all the people who work on offering them the opportunity to develop themselves and to be a part of Access Microscholarship Program Moldova.
