Global Young Leaders Conference - Day 3

26 June 2015

Day 3 of GYLC started off with a Leadership Group Meeting (LGM), like many other days. This is when we meet in our ‘countries’ and are informed about the upcoming speaker that day.

Today’s speaker was Mr. Langenkamp from the United States State Department. And I think that I speak for many of us when I say that he was the best speaker we have had so far. He spoke about the places his job had taken him to and answered all of our burning questions. The ease with which he spoke and how patient he was was really inspiring me.

After the amazing speech, we headed out to Dupont Circle for lunch. There were so many options that we had a hard time deciding what to get, it ranged from Burgers to Vietnamese noodles to plain old Subway.

Without a break, each group drove to a different embassy. The embassy I visited wasn’t really an embassy; it was the JICC (Japanese Information and Culture Centre), which is a part of the Japanese embassy in Washington. Everyone was very welcoming and gave us some more insight into Japanese culture. This included popular tourist sites, traditional food and fashion among other things.

The rest of the day consisted of more LGMs and finally at 10:00 bedtime(!) after an eventful day…
