On Sunday December 6th 2020 at 12pm EST, the Maltese Center presented its first live ZOOM show IL-MALTIN TAGĦNA with guest Ms. Francesca Cassar, a Maltese diplomat who is our Consul in New York at the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Malta to the United Nations. This new show features live conversations with interesting people who do extraordinary things. Each guest shares his or her experiences and accomplishments ending with a moderated Q & A between the guest and the audience. To be a part of the live audience, participants must register here .The interview puts a spotlight on Maltese in our community near and far, exploring what they do. Ms. Cassar explained her role within the Maltese consulate, her representation of Malta here at the United Nations, and how she transitioned from a classical ballerina to diplomacy. Through the Q & A the audience were able to ask Ms. Cassar questions ranging from obtaining Maltese passports to her point of view from living in Malta to moving to New York, and what it means to be Maltese. We are proud and honored to have Ms. Francesca Cassar as part of the Maltese delegation in New York, representing Malta and its citizens. She truly showed her passion for her role as Consul and for being our first guest right here on IL-MALTIN TAGĦNA . To view the recording of the show or see the upcoming schedule of guests click here.
