Libra Internship Program Alumni Welcome Alvaro Uribe, Former President of Colombia, to Athens, Greece
Athens, June 15, 2017 – Last week, alumni of the Libra Internship Program were honored to welcome Alvaro Uribe, the former President of Colombia, and his wife Lina, to Athens, Greece. Representatives from the last five years of intern classes engaged President Uribe in a robust conversation about the global economy, the political and economic climate in Central and South America, as well as the implications of the recent political developments in Europe and its impact across the world. Most importantly, President Uribe encouraged those around the table to think big, but to also engage locally. He shared that to have an impact as a global citizen you must explore, learn languages and be socially active in your community. This very special dialogue left the alumni even more inspired to use their experiences gained through the Libra Internship Program to make a difference. Thank you to President Uribe for your leadership and an unforgettable experience.
