“I love the intercultural environment at Thunderbird - my daily interactions include communication with many different cultures within Executive Education, the Thunderbird campus and external clients all over the world. I love that we have a book club that reads a book from a different country every month! I strive to be a global citizen and believe in the classic African philosophy of Ubuntu: ‘I am what I am because of who we all are.’”
