Sarah with Congressman John Conyers (D-MI)

It’s barely been 2 weeks since I got back to Oman, but it feels a lot longer already, just as it felt when we were in DC. Participating in the the Legislative Fellows Program has been the experience of a lifetime for me.

In the span of one month I feel I have acquired a wealth of knowledge in so many different aspects. But the one thing that struck me the most was the hospitality extended to us by Legacy. Having participated in another State Department program before, I really felt the difference with the program administrators this time around. You have humbled us with your hospitality and kindness and that is probably the biggest thing I take back with me to Oman. Mr Rash, I congratulate you on this wonderful organization which you established and wish you continued success in all your endevours.

In a bit of news of how we made use of our time in D.C., Riyadh and I managed to set up a training program with our contacts at the Commercial Law Development Program of the U.S. Department of Commerce, which will be taking place on Monday and Tuesday this week at our ministry. We’re excited that it has come together so quickly and are grateful for the time we had in D.C. to put this together. If there’s one thing we did right, we certainly did a lot of networking!

Sarah’s three week fellowship was in the office of Congressman John Conyers (D-MI).
