"Study abroad is about shaping the future of your countries and of the world we all share. Because, when it comes to the defining challenges of our time β€” whether it’s climate change or economic opportunity or the spread of nuclear weapons β€” these are shared challenges. And no one country can confront them alone. The only way forward is together.” - Michelle Obama, March 2014
