So...What Are We Doing?



This week, we're hosting 105 Georgia students for Leadership Unplugged:  A CNN Experience.  It's an annual event that brings CNN Student News together with 21st Century Leaders, a program that encourages and amplifies leadership characteristics among high school students.  Workshops, presentations, networking opportunities and a journalism project are all part of the deal.  (And you may see some coverage of this in an upcoming show.)

That's what we're up to this week.  What are you doing?

    I still have school here and it's very boring. Most of the tests are done now, and I still try to be present as much as possible. Only four weeks left for us.

    The best thing in this times is the European championship. Friends and I watch every game on a huge screen in the middle of our city. Today evening, it's Germany against Turkey. GO GERMANY, GO!!!

    Just got home from the game Germany vs. Turkey. Germany won (3:2), which means we are in the final game!!

    I just love to get outside on the street and celebrate with anyone out there after we won a game, even with people you don't know at all! It's interesting how the nation gets together in such times.

    Hi Carl Azuz. I want to contact you and i find this blog. My english name is cassie kim.
    I'm korean so i definitely can't take advatage of your leadership program. I really have interesting in journalism.
    I always watch this show via i-tune. I'm sad about summer-time break.
    Of course you have to rest, but i'm just sad to loose one program during summer.
    I'm in highschool senior now, so really busy for preparing the university entering exam. Korea's education program is absolutely different from America's. I want to let American sudents to know about this.
    I'm planning to work in Newyouk magazine (any magazine is ok), so trying really hard to master english. And your show is really helpful to strenghten my listening.
    I'm not high class girl, so it'll be hard to get in the University of Missiouri and pay for all those tuition. But i want to learn, and i want to report news so i never give up.
    I'll stop by here more often. commenting to your own post is kind of fun. I hope someday, i can send you an article about anything.
    Have a nice day and post again soon. bye!
    (and your show is really funny)

    Hello Mr. Azuz and all of you over at CNN Student News! I really enjoyed meeting all of you over the past week and I will continue to stay in touch with most, if not all of you! I think that this experience was awesome! I mean it isn't everyday you get to meet the people responsible for the NEWS! Thanks a lot for being there!


    P.S. Jordan, All of the GAMMAS missed you at the business luncheon! Two of our teams made the top 3! We couldn't have done it without your help! So thanks again!
