Go to http://educationusa.state.gov | Interested in studying in Latin America or the Caribbean? Go to http://exchanges.state.gov/us Transcript: As President Obama said last year in Mexico When we study together, we learn together We work together, and we prosper together. We all know that that better future is within reach if you have the chance to reach for the brass ring, which comes from education. 100k Strong initiative is an initiative to promote people to people exchange between The United States and Latin America I studied abroad about ten years ago And so when I came back to college it furthered my commitment to learning more about Latin America it was my specialization in college. I was a Latin American studies major. And then for the next eight years I worked on immigration and refugee policy which primarily impacts Latin America. And right now I am actually back in graduate school and I just completed an internship here at the State Department Working with Brazil and the Southern Cone. So Latin America is still near and deep to my heart. A lot of our economic future will be conducted in the language of the Americas. That's why President Obama among other reasons launched the 100,000 Strong 100,000 students going to Latin America and the Caribbean by the year 2020 and 100,000 students in the hemisphere coming here. For students who go at a younger age on exchange experiences not only class type of experiences but also cultural experience that helps them understand countries and cultures better that will help them become adults who are more understanding of the world and become better leaders in the future. You know William Butler Yeats said, "Education is not filling a pail, it's lighting a fire." and we have an overwhelming opportunity to light that spark on a continent, in a hemisphere that is just ready it is just absolutely ready

VOLUNTEER: These are spinach seeds. Let me get four people here, who have never planted a seed. Okay. And then we will space, you want the seeds to be at least half-an-inch deep. And we’ll space them, um, about two seeds every three inches. HUSSEINA: I’m in Hell’s Kitchen, right now. I love gardening. I’ve been like sowing seeds in soil and I learned many great things here. IMANE: So the people here have thought that rooftops are mainly for barbecues and maybe parties, but why not having some productive things on rooftops, so they try to plant some stuff to feed people. Yeah! And it’s fun! MANAL: It is inspiring us to for us to think about some new projects for us to work on This is definitely modifying our projects that we already thought about. SALLY:This experience is the best experience you will ever have in your life. Enjoy to the max. And take advantage from this experience as much as you can.

Hoba Hoba Spirit Will Tour The United States

This September the crowd-wowing Morcc'n Roll band from Casablanca, Hoba Hoba Spirit, will tour the United States. [Hoba Hoba Spirit's song, "Ma Ajebtinich" plays] Anouar: What I like about my influences is that it's the only thing that have no limits. No frontiers, no nothing. That's what we are trying to do in our music, in Hoba Hoba. Since we are independent we don't have any major, we don't belong to any major company. We belong to ourselves. And to say to the others that every story, every story you live is worth to be sung, is worth to be living. Just be yourself. Reda: Music is not about words or notes. It's about something happening. It's about trying to spread emotions. Spread them to an audience that understands you or don't understand you. Adil: We are always glad to represent our music in places where people never heard about it because there is some cliche. You know, when you say people are coming from North Africa they think we play oriental music, you know, belly dancing, you know. We are not that kind of people so. By example, when we played in the Kennedy Center in 2009, even for me it was a shock. Because I wasn't expecting to those people, you know, well dressed people with ties and everything and then after 15 minutes, sweating! And they all come front and start dancing. You know, 50 years old people or something was even for me, was like, "Wow!" Reda: So connecting to people who are not supposed to be able to connect to us, it's something we know and we are used to. It's work, no problem. [Hoba Hoba Spirit's song, "Trabando" plays]
