Yesterday we were reunited with our fellow Young Ambassadors, from all around the world. It was pretty exciting, I honestly have never met another group of such inspired, wonderful and amiable people. It was amazing to see everyone again!
We were reunited with another group as well, the drumming team, who re-taught us our rhythm for a performance at the WOWcome session! Haha, it was news to all of us, but hey, it’s a lot of fun and honestly…I think everyone really enjoyed it! Even if it meant overcoming a little bit of shyness!
We all finally met Maysam, the Jordanian Young Ambassador who was not able to join us in March. Maysam and I both had “tom” drums, and so we connected over our mutual drum beat haha, not to mention our occasional missed beats. Well, at least mine!
The entire Village square was PACKED with athletes, for at least 100 yards. It was incredible. The energy was like nothing else. I mean, imagine 3000 athletes, a dark night with amazing lights, and an impressive stage at one end. Definitely something to remember.
The night ended with a little dancing, and different definitions of what that means. Just watching the young athletes was interesting and no doubt entertaining! There were Brasilians, Iranians, Italians, Russians, and more, all sharing their moves. Haha, legendary interactions occur when a group of excited teens from around the world try to dance with each other!
BUT, the Young Ambassadors were no exception…
