AMBASSADORS

Passion for Sharing

The distinctive component of many CultureALL programs is the CultureALL Ambassadors who bring their culture to classrooms, the community, and the workplace, Many Ambassadors were born in other countries, raised in other cultures, or have lived and worked extensively in other regions of the world. Now living in Iowa, they have a passion for sharing their cultures through their special skills as teachers, storytellers, artists, dancers, and musicians. These firsthand encounters with CultureALL Ambassadors help Iowans open up to new perspectives and thought processes.
