Quotes from

Class of June 2013

"If someone asks me these days where are you from and what do you do, my answer won't be the same. Now I am Colombian lawyer working in Africa and the Middle East, with a  masters degree from The American University in Cairo. This is the world today, with no barriers or frontiers to achieve our goals".
