Dr. Rajiv Shah, USAID Administrator

Young Americans across the country are the first generation of Americans to truly grow up in an ever-connected, global community. I am humbled by the innovation and passion young people bring to their work that is changing lives every day. So many youth are engaged in exceptional work in their communities as well as in our more global community. At USAID, we want to make sure this work is acknowledged and that this experience is heard.

This is why I am excited to invite all of you to a conversation with Administrator Rajiv Shah on "How to Make Change: Youth and International Development." He will join Kalpen Modi from the White House for a live web chat with young Americans about international development.

This event will be a fantastic opportunity to participate in a conversation with the Administrator about how young people are changing the game when it comes to poverty in the United States and around the world.

We want to know what you think about the role of USAID and the Obama Administration should be playing to tackle challenges related to global poverty and international development.

You can send in your questions for Administrator Shah and Kalpen Modi.

Be sure to tune in on Thursday, July 7 at 1:30 p.m. (EDT) on whitehouse.gov/live and facebook.com/whitehouse.

Should USAID fall under the Secretary of State or directly under the President? What do you think? USAID currently falls directly under the President.

In Congress, the influence of Secretary of State, once again, people will recognize, I think the opportunity is too great. Never, that died together, be foolish to believe this is not the Secretary of State, I should think. Relative to feel the fear, terrified that everything is nothing to lose motivation to think otherwise.can also make some decisions, there is good reason to think that.

Before we get started, in Korea, save my work and would like to talk about the situation in the workplace.

Difficult, vans and station to get a job, you always want to kill me with the intent of the cars show up, it interfering with my livelihood, one month can be difficult to work properly. How many times have you got your job cut out or I'm not sure. So, if things came to a different area, a similar situation is repeated.
For more difficult situations, wherever I work, boss or employee responsible for me in the direction of someone, keep an eye on me, and if the behavior is different from their commitment, and fertilization, and prevents.

There is no way to work. I'm now working places, to think that someone who moves into the direction of, who? I do not know what to do. Will you help me, can we do about it?

If you continue to keep this situation not anything, just to live and dying ... Mad at the U.S. embassy or U.S. military special help to think that the situation is difficult to expect.

However, based on where politicians and the media should maintain a fairly close relationship was shown in, I want to trust anyone?

At a minimum, work and work, earning money from the least comfortable, I like to go on a trip to the United States.

This is to stop thinking we could find somewhere else.
I keep repeating a similar situation as before, which someone Why are you avoiding me, I'm not sure ... actually go away. Are willing to kill fellow human beings give you bothering me all? Already, the harassment and surveillance to eavesdrop, I think is unacceptable is out of range. I think that it is best way to kill. Do not kill me, harass me, to watch, the person-they do not want to win in eletion, in USA of your`s?

italia`s doing, i think, so weak....

The problem is not simple or easily resolved, I think. Around the room to protect European countries falls short of the country with. Need to think very seriously. Actions must be simple, but the procedures and methods to look at the whole of Europe must act to think. Strong political action reports, the reaction of Italian investment company looking to continue the sidelines to see action, not going to thought. Have the potential to create a bad precedent and should be more strongly believe that the action of Italy. My opinion, I think the move to investment companies already spend. I called to Italy to purchase the shares or stock of the possibility of misunderstanding, but no money to buy stocks.
