Please join us for a conversation with an American diplomat from the U.S. Consulate General in Erbil about the American lifestyle. The session will explore how various cultures have contributed to making the United States the unique and diverse country it is - from its native American roots to the waves of immigration that have drawn people from around the world. Today, the United States is often described as a ‘melting pot’ or a ‘patchwork quilt’.
