CPD Video Conversations from Shanghai Expo Features the U.S. Pavilion

On June 21, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy's research team in Shanghai released a video conversation focusing on the U.S. pavilion and its student ambassadors. This video post is the first of two parts; the second part will be released later this week.

Titled "Brand Ambassadors," this CPD video blog highlights the experiences of the American student ambassadors in Shanghai. In the video posts, students describe their typical days at the Expo which involve greeting and explaining to the Chinese visitors in Mandarin the U.S. pavilion, and two student ambassadors explain their motivations for coming to the expo. This video conversation also includes an interview with the program officer of the U.S. pavilion who provides an overview of the Student Ambassador Program.
