Mahatma Gandhi’s peaceful resistance, Dr. Martin Luther King’s fight against discrimination, Nelson Mandela’s struggle for freedom and Malala Yusufzai's vigorous passion for education were the focus of Ms. Diane Millar's talk as she interacted with students of Education for Peace, an initiative of New Age Islam Foundation and discussed with them the leadership qualities of these prominent world leaders of peace, freedom and education.
The programme was basically aimed at improving English communication skills of the Education for Peace students at its premises on 16 January 2014. Education for Peace regularly organises such interactions for its students who come from underprivileged backgrounds.
Ms. Diane Millar, Regional English Language Officer, Embassy of the United States of America, was the chief guest and mentor of this 3-hour communicative English programme. After she talked to the students about the contribution of these leaders on the 85th birth anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, she dwelt on the distinguishing qualities and skills required to be a good leader. Speaking to the students in an interactive way, she explained to them why a good leader needs to be honest, intelligent, well-behaved, peace-loving, sympathetic, and determined in his or her aim.
