Savannah Patterson represented Pace High School as a charter member of the Gulf Coast Citizen Diplomacy Council Youth Diplomats Program in 2017 and 2018. She was one of three chosen to visit Washington, D.C. where she spent two days exploring international exchange, diplomacy, and the U.S. government through a series of meetings and site visits with the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Diplomacy Center, the office of Senator Marco Rubio, Meridian International, the Embassy of the Republic of Belarus, and Georgetown University. On reflection, Savannah wrote:

Visiting D.C. for the First Time

visiting D.C. for the first time is like
finding a quilt from your early childhood.
pieces of cultures and countries
recognizable from old bedtime stories
sewn together in fantastic shape and color.
a patchwork of familiar symbols from a lucid dream,
the district materializes in a living, breathing fabric,
embroidered with iconic history
and stitched with personal significance.
– Savannah Patterson, Youth Diplomat 2018
