Last week, Deputy Assistant United States Trade Representative for Korea Affairs Bryant Trick sat down with Dani Kaiser, a student from Parker High School of Janesville, Wisconsin. Dani was in Washington, D.C. as a 2011 Washington Seminar scholar for the program’s 39th Annual Field Study. The program is sponsored by local hometown supporters, including the School District of Janesville and the Janesville Education Association, and directed by the Advanced Placement Government teacher, Joe Van Rooy. During the meeting, Dani discussed with Bryant her interest in the U.S.-Korea trade agreement and the U.S. strategic relationship with Korea.

While in Washington, D.C., Dani also met with officials at the Department of State, the Korean Embassy, and the U.S.-Asia Policy Institute, as well as with Members of Congress. Dani plans to use the research she gathered on this trip to write an opinion piece for her local newspaper.
By seizing educational opportunities and sharing her insights into trade and U.S. competitiveness, Dani is doing her part to help America win the future. President Obama emphasizes education as a vital element of America’s global competitiveness.
