"This whole experience has been absolutely amazing and has completely blown me away. … [Support for STEM is] extremely important, not just for the advancement of any one of us, but for the advancement of all of us, regardless of nationality, borders, religion, beliefs, anything. It’s important that we can all move forward together and the way through that is with technology... Possibly the greatest part of FIRST Global is the meeting of everyone and making friends."
"... At the end of high school when I was first introduced to robotics and FIRST [Global], I only realized then how STEM was accessible to me and how I could implement it in my real life, how I could use technology, as a teenager, to change my communities and change the face of my nation. So that has helped me a lot and empowered me a lot to move forward and to dream bigger.”
"Robotics changed my life and opened my eyes to a whole new world."
