During my first semester at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, I was invited to attend the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) held in New York City. The summit focused on enabling efforts to tackle the world’s most challenging problems and achieving a sustainable future through business. I had a unique opportunity to network with numerous business leaders, executives, and researchers from the world’s leading universities. But most notably, I had the chance to meet the 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, a member of the Fulbright Association and once an intern at the office of Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright, the founder of the Fulbright Program!
