With the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens fresh in the minds of many of us, it is important to understand what it takes to be a great ambassador. Many reports speak very highly of Stevens, who worked closely with Libyans rebels to encourage a democratic transition of power after Moammar Gaddafi was removed. Stevens has been lauded as being professional, humble, and an incredibly hard worker.
All around the world, ambassadors are living in foreign nations, advocating for the interests of their home country while maintaining a diplomatic relationship with their hosts. This position is widely overlooked, save for instances of international crisis or unrest.
Humility and hard work are certainly a part of each ambassador’s job description, and these two traits are highly valued here at Invisible Children. You could even say that ‘Work Hard, Stay Humble’ has been a mantra of sorts here in the office over the past year, and we don’t plan on that changing anytime soon. Or ever.
Nobody here works harder to be an ambassador for Invisible Children than our incredible Roadie teams. There are currently 20 different teams all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico that are sharing our story at schools, places of worship, and community centers. They are the face, the voice, and the right and left hands of this organization, and we cannot thank them enough for their hard work.
If you would like to bring one of these teams to share our new film with your community, you can request a screening or call our office at (619) 562-2799. It’s really easy, it’s free, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet directly with knowledgeable, credible sources that are willing to answer any question you have about this conflict.
