Ambassador’s job (Spanish)

Transcripts available in the following languages:

(Spanish) I enjoyed being an Ambassador of Good Will. I was nominated in the 2006. The invitation never arrived. I then found out that it wasn’t made from here to there, from Peru to Okinawa, but that had been requested from Okinawa to Peru. And I know it was by the Okinawan newspapers and universities when they found out of what I was doing. I have asked for meetings and reflections to analyze what is to be an ambassador, because many people think this title is to talk about their own culture in your own group. What does that have to do with being an ambassador? Nothing. The work of an ambassador lies on working out of town, highlighting the characteristics of your community with pride, joy and pleasure.
