On the 29th of April the schoolgirls of Yamal came back home from the USA and shared their impressions. They went to the excursion around the UN headquarters, the high school at the Permanent Mission of Russia to the UN in New York. There are only 140 pupils, in some grades there are 3-5 people. The children are taught on the basis of the Russian program. Their parents are diplomats. Also children of our compatriots study there. The educational institution is ranked first among foreign Russian schools. In addition, the schoolgirls participated in the meeting with the deputy chief representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, who gave the girls important and main advice in the sphere of diplomacy, helped to decide on the future profession.
Yelena Filippova has recently joined the club of young diplomats, but she has already fulfilled one project. Now she is preparing the next one aimed at connecting different peoples. It will be fulfilled together with children from the USA.
“The meeting was decisive, I want to connect my life with diplomacy and to represent our Yamal”, she said.
A tenth-grader Ilmira Idrisova from Obdorsk upper secondary school not only received the basics of diplomacy, but even was able to apply her skills in practice.
“It happened so that the guide on the sightseeing tour, seeing our camera with a tripod, got very afraid that even the tour was in danger of failure. We managed to reach the agreement with him and to convince him that Russian television and Russia in general were not as scary as he thought”, she said.
For Ilmira it was a good lesson to visit the musical “Aladdin” on Broadway. She is engaged in music and now knows how to behave on stage and in life. In her opinion, a diplomat should have three main qualities: to be open, not to worry and always be able to get out of the situation.
The schoolgirl plans to maintain relations with compatriots and hopes to meet with them already in Russia.
