Howard University Visit

On Wednesday morning, Mrs. Obama gave a speech in front of high school and college students at Howard University about the Chinese president’s visit and the importance of studying abroad. Student panelists at the event elaborated on their experiences while visiting China. The discussion supported the president’s “100,000 Strong” initiative, a nationwide effort to get American students to study abroad in China, preparing a new crop of global leaders who will support diplomatic ties.
