STUDY ABROAD CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE – AND YOUR COUNTRY Fabiola Rodriguez-Ciampoli, who serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State

for Western Hemisphere Affairs, describes the influence that study abroad can have on both a personal and global level. She points out that “although most people realize that study abroad can change an individual’s life, they often don’t

recognize how important international exchanges can be as a contribution to relations between our countries.” As an example of the impact study abroad can make, Fabiola discusses her interactions with the 100,000 Strong in the Americas initiative which promotes educational exchanges throughout the Western Hemisphere in order to encourage greater prosperity, economic equality, and sustainability.
