Hi Travelers! Today I show you what a day in the life of a diplomat is like. I had the chance to be the volunteer coordinator of this year’s 4th of July party. It was the first 4th of July event we had since the pandemic. And, it was almost my first big event as a diplomat; it was so much fun! You’re not truly an official diplomat until you volunteer for the Embassy or Consulate’s 4th of July Party 🙂
The 4th of July is one of the biggest events we throw as diplomats. It is a great way to not only celebrate the United States’ independence, but it also gives the staff at the Embassy or Consulate a chance to interact with the community and our counterparts.
For these types of events, planning starts months earlier and requires many moving parts. Closer to the party we had weekly meetings. There was a lot of work that went into it. Sometimes it was stressful, but I had so much fun.
When I first started I thought I would just be organizing a group of volunteers. I didn’t realize that I also had to work with different offices (from Management to Motorpool to Facilities) to ensure that everything ran smoothly. For these types of events, it truly is all hands on deck. Anywho, check out what my day was like 🙂
