Meet Eman: Student Ambassador to Embassy Sydney


Embassy English Student Ambassadors participate in Orientation Day presentations and extracurricular activities, and they offer valuable advice about site-seeing, local cultural events, and adjusting to life far away from home. These Ambassadors act as a “buddy-system” for our  students, so that everyone has a peer who has already experienced Embassy and can be an adviser and new friend from day one.  This week, we caught up with Eman Alsuhaymi from Saudi Arabia, our Student Ambassador to  Embassy Sydney.
