They try to describe our country, our family, our faith. They say we
are this and that. But, do they really know us?
Why are they representing us to the world?
No one knows our world better than us.
No one can tell our story better than us.
Lets show the world who we really are. Lets come together to tell
everyone our real stories. Lets take a Stand for what we believe in.
Let's Add truth with our own voice. Lets inspire the world with our
passion. Lets take control of our image. Lets be part of something
From now on we represent us.
The world is watching.
The world is judging.
The world is waiting to see what you Stand for....Start Diplomacy
