Orientation Day in Chicago

Photojournalist of the Day: Zhaina S. (Kazakhstan)

Hello! My name is Zhaina and I’m from Kazakhstan. Today we had an orientation day in Chicago. We met with the team of organizers for our program and also with the athletes and coaches from Thailand. We learned about the itinerary and expectation for the whole trip.

We also explored the city with the WorldChicago Youth Diplomats. We saw the main sights of Chicago such as the Cloud Gate, the Crown Fountain, the concert venue, the river, the Chicago Tribune building and many others.


The Sports Visitor Program entitled, "Youth Wheelchair Basketball, Disability Rights, and Inclusion", brings 14 participants from Kazakhstan and Thailand to the U.S. for a fast-paced short-term sports cultural exchange.
