exchange programs like Fulbright allow
00:06
Americans to really get to see the world
00:08
to reflect on what it means to be a
00:11
global citizen but also a United States
00:13
citizen as you travel abroad
00:19
mutual understanding is a term that I
00:21
hear a lot in association with hope
00:23
right and I think mutual understanding
00:26
is a key to peaceful coexistence let's
00:30
understand each other and let's make
00:32
those and forge those relationships so
00:34
that we can be stronger to get
00:36

00:39
everyone kind of wants to leave their
00:41
mark on the world in some way and make
00:44
the world a better place in some small
00:46
way and Fulbright really lets you do
00:48
that what I see systematically in my own
00:52
experience experience of my students
00:55
that have gone on exchanges is that
00:57
there's just a substantially more
00:59
understanding of the commonalities that
01:01
we all experience and that we all face
01:03

01:08
sharing this a cultural awareness and
01:10
this intercultural communication and
01:12
being able to share these different
01:14
ideas I mean not just with people abroad
01:17
but also people at home too
01:19
this is what Fulbright's all about
01:29
you
