"I remember my first day at Thunderbird and the flag ceremony where they presented all the different countries represented in my incoming class. There was country after country. It was a non-stop ceremony and I was very, very emotional about it. I think the education you receive at Thunderbird, together with the interaction with people from all over the world, makes you think outside of the box. It makes you a better person, a worthy person, much more than you already were before coming to Thunderbird. I think this is an interesting quality about the school and the assets that we take with us for the rest of our lives. I believe that even though T-birds come from different places, from different parts of the world, we're all the same. We are all one. We are all human beings with the need to develop ourselves. We have a sense of respect and a desire to build a better world than where we are today."
