The queen spoke to Dagens Nyheter in Washington
Drugs were the subject of the Queen's visit to Washington on Tuesday, as part of the Mentor Foundation, which she co-founded in 1994. The organization is in several countries and works against drugs and to strengthen young people and their self-esteem. In Washington, they work with a hundred mentors in secondary schools in disadvantaged areas. During the visit, the Queen was given the opportunity to listen to several students' stories about their own experiences with drugs, and she says she was very moved by them:
- It was the third time I visited Cesar Chavez School since 2010. It is amazing to see how young people grow when you take care of them. Many live in difficult conditions and lack role models. When you talk with them, you notice how important it is that they have someone to talk to. Their parents do not always have the time or have their own problems. But it is not just young people who grow, but also teachers and mentors.
The contact between the student and mentor progresses with frequent meetings during a year's time.
- Unfortunately, drugs are readily available, but if you strengthen young people's self-esteem, it may be easier to resist group pressure, says Queen Silvia.

Queen Silvia attended this morning at The “Shattering the Myths” event, hosted by Mentor Foundation USA, in partnership with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
180 high school students from the High School of Economics & Finance interacted with top U.S. scientific experts and inspiring guest speakers to help “shatter the myths” about alcohol and substance abuse, and pledge to stay drug-free. The event was held at the High School of Economics & Finance.
During the event, students had the opportunity to have their questions answered by a leading NIDA scientist, and heard the truth about the dangers of substance abuse. The program concluded with slam poetry performances by students from the High School of Economics & Finance where they expressed and shared their own stories centered around substance abuse.

Queen Silvia attended today at the Board meeting and annual meeting of Mentor Sweden. Opening the annual meeting at the Bernadotte Library:
https://twitter.com/BoJanssonLR/stat...29992898265089

Alexandra Pascalidou (a Greek-Swedish columnist, television hostess and author) at her Facebook:
The first time I met the Queen, I was 14 and went in Rinkeby School. The Queen greeted and we were so happy that she looked like we and sounded like our mothers. Then I would never dare to dream of one day work with the queen at the Palace and lead Mentor's Annual General Meeting for the eminent guests, mentors and youth. Thanks to everyone involved! Today it is more important than ever that we are weaving the world together.

Queen Silvia was interviewed at the Mentor events at the Royal Palace.
The Queen was asked if Princess Leonore and Prince Nicolas will be with the baptism of Prince Oscar on May 27th. Many missed them at the King's 70th birthday.
- We have discussed about it so much, but they are quite small. Obviously we would have liked to see little Leonore be there when the king turned 70, but it was so much official, with changes and time pressure, so I don't think they had felt so good then. I hope everyone understands that it is not so easy with a ten-month baby and a two year old, the Queen explained.
Expressen's TV-reporter Jenny Petersson also asked the Queen if she had any mentors in her life.
- When I came to Sweden 40 years ago, it was pretty lonely for me here. Most people around me were men and military. Princess Christina has always been there, and of course, she has meant a lot to me. But as a mentor Queen Ingrid was a great role model and help. She was very attentive and we had a fine relationship, the Queen told.

Queen Silvia of Sweden, who is also chairperson of Mentor Foundation International, has commended efforts by the Kuwaiti official and private bodies for the prevention of drugs, and awareness on their dangers.
Drugs are no local or even regional problem, but an international one that worries the entire world, Queen Silvia told KUNA on Saturday, during her current visit to Kuwait. She said that the world has been suffering from the spread of narcotics and drug-taking at early age, as they have become easy to buy under various names and at low prices. It is a global worry. The Queen voiced pride of the hard efforts and achievements of Mentor Arabia in Kuwait and the entire Arab region.
