U.S. Exchange Program Alumna February 2011
01 March 2011
Over the last 60 years, thousands of UK citizens have traveled to the United States on exchange programs sponsored by the American Embassy in London. Each month we highlight alumni of these programs.
This month’s alumna is Tasneem Mahmood, Founder and Director of Hear My Voice. Her Birmingham organization helps give young people a creative and sustainable means of tackling problems. Tasneem’s organization relies on volunteers who serve as role models to local teens. Tasneem traveled to the U.S. on the Embassy’s International Visitor Leadership Program in August 2009, where she participated in a three-week program entitled “Volunteerism: United We Serve.” See what Tasneem has done since returning from the United States (Windows Media Video).
