Lakewood UCC member Zach Blair-Andrews was selected as a Student Ambassador for the City of St Pete and is currently visiting our sister city, Takamatsu, Japan. This cultural exchange program provides 2-3 students from each city the opportunity to live with host families and explore each other’s world. During his 11 day visit, Zach will give a presentation on St Pete to the Mayor of Takamatsu and once he returns, he will educate us about life in our sister city across the globe.
Below is a video Zach made of St Pete with an original soundtrack of his own that he is playing for the Mayor in Takamatsu tomorrow–he loves our city!
