Two weeks to go: Become an Ambassador for a day!

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the British Embassy in Beirut launched its ‘Ambassador For A Day’ (AFAD) competition, now jointly with the Embassy of Canada to Lebanon. AFAD winners will get to shadow an Ambassador in Lebanon for one day, to see first-hand how girls can become leaders and advocates for change.

Each winner will be paired with an Ambassador or head of a U.N. Agency in Lebanon to spend a day with them and their team, and be invited as Guests of Honour to a ceremony hosted by the British and Canadian embassies. "This promises to be an unforgettable opportunity to build skills in diplomacy, confidence, and leadership," the British Embassy in Beirut said in a statement.

"We encourage all girls from all backgrounds living in Lebanon, aged 15-18 years old and not at university to apply,"the embassy said. The competition closes midnight 7 April 2024.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is Inspire Inclusion. To enter, participants should submit either a video or short essay in English or Arabic answering the question:

"If you were an Ambassador for a Day, how would you inspire better inclusion of others in your community?"
