Almas is a volunteer at a New York City school where Smith was also scheduled to speak. Additionally, he has been a major proponent of developing student interest in foreign affairs at Bayonne High School.

Almas was a major proponent of the school starting a Model UN club, Ward said, which has led to countless experiences for students in New York City.

He said: “The Hometown Diplomats program can be seen as an extension of that work as well as part of the Department's efforts to develop a network that can provide unique opportunities for students and teachers such as the internships Ms. Smith spoke of.”

Smith was a New York City teacher prior to joining the U.S. State Department. She is currently stationed in Guadalajara, Mexico. Her first tour was in Georgetown, Guyana.
