Thornton Academy Ambassadors Program Fosters Friendships and Encourages Cultural Exchange

The Thornton Academy Ambassadors Program fosters friendships and encourages cultural exchange between TA’s international and American students. Anna Nguyen from Vietnam, Ilayda Celik from Turkey, Annick Umuliza from Rwanda, and Nick Tsiapkalo from Ukraine (pictured left to right in the first row) recently answered questions about teenage life and education in their respective countries for the Ambassadors Program. They were joined by a group of women educators from the Delta Kappa Gamma Society and the meeting was facilitated by Ambassador Program Advisor Jen Logan. Thornton welcomes students from 35 countries across the globe and we love hosting these thought-provoking discussions!
