(IOWA CITY, IOWA) — A foreign exchange student from Akkar, Lebanon taught 90 American students in Iowa City, Iowa the Lebanese National Anthem this week, just before Lebanese Independence Day.

“I’ve been working on a project in choir. I taught them the national anthem. It only took then a couple of days to learn it as they were very excited,” said Roudaina Al Zohby, who came to the United States through the AMIDEAST Youth Exchange and Study program.

AMIDEAST is a U.S. non-profit organization that works to strengthen mutual understanding and cooperation between Americans and the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa.
