Twenty-five students at English Drive Summer Camp learned what it takes to be a diplomat on Monday, when the Public Affairs Officer and staff from the U.S. Consulate in Yekaterinburg visited.  The students participated in role plays, in which they reacted to common situations faced by consular, management, political and public diplomacy officers.  In addition, the students took a mock Foreign Service officer test and diplomacy quiz, as they learned about the academic and professional experiences needed to become a diplomat.  Staff from the Consulate also presented useful resources form the consulate, such as e-Library USA, to the students.
