At one of the Teen Leadership Academy meetings students from North Cedar Academy hosted a lunch for the other participants and leaders. We had Pho (soup) from Vietnam with Tai, German potato salad from Feli (Germany), New York style cheesecake from Ramsey (Brooklyn, NY), chicken kebabs from Lima (Afghanistan), cucumber and tomato salad from Kaihan and Tommy (Afghanistan & Azerbaijan), and Tilbes Fir Fir (a spicy beef dish with Injera bread) from Jerry (Ethiopia). Gabrielle from Chippewa Falls also helped with the kebabs. All the students cooked their food from scratch and spent their snow day in the kitchen. Everyone was so appreciative of the great food and learning about other cultures. Our students add a special element to the 青少年领导力学院 meetings with their openness to share their culture and traditions in discussions with the local 学生们. We are incredibly proud of their efforts to share with others, as well as, their ability to share their culture with the group.
