What does it take to be a U.S. diplomat?

 

Lauren takes us behind the scenes at the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C. where the US Foreign Service is based. While there, the Acting Assistant Secretary Mike Hammer explains what the Foreign Service’s purpose is and some of the expectations and qualifications of the diplomats who promote America’s interests in other countries.
Also, Lauren shows us an online test on the State Department’s website which can tell teens if they’d be good candidates to travel the world as diplomats.
