Public Diplomacy at it’s best

Thanks to Naomi Leight, my daughter’s college freshman roommate who is now in the inaugural Public Diplomacy Master’s degree program at USC there is a new way to think of the mission of Dog Meets World. Naomi notes:

You are taking an aspect of Western culture and society and exporting it in a positive way globally, which is in-turn being received positively as well! People-to-people diplomacy is the way diplomacy will be in the 21st century and what your doing is exactly that.  It is such a creative idea and I cannot wait to see the progress you will make on this initiative.

After a number of conversation it is clear that Naomi will really be assisting in strengthening Dog Meets World and helping us publicize it more in terms of receiving donations and support. Welcome aboard Naomi!
