On Sunday, January 25th, His Excellency the US Ambassador to Tunisia, Jake Walles, paid a visit to Schooling Plus to meet the 2013-2015 Access students.
He visited Access classes and interacted with students who were working on their “I have a dream” speeches. Their dreams were inspired by Martin Luther King Junior, but rooted in their local reality.
January, students told the Ambassador, was important for both Americans and Tunisians.
Americans celebrate MLK ‘ Day and remember his dream for an inclusive America and Tunisians celebrate a day when they asked for change and made it happen, showing that both of our peoples embrace the universal values of equality dignity and freedom memorably expressed by the founding fathers of America that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed with their creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and he pursuit of happiness”
