Thoughts, Reflections, Insights from the IELC – from Reflections by Weldon Bradshaw
Junior Ambassador Elizabeth H. captures the people and the energy of IELC 2015.
After a second jam-packed day in D.C., delegates convened back at the hotel to share one last meal together. However, before the dining commenced, each delegation was invited to share a few reflective words about the experience of IELC. Each of the 12 countries had powerful and impressionable insights to offer, and there was not a dry eye in the house after all of the presentations.
