WE HAVE ALL WITNESSED firsthand the power of interna-

tional exchange. Experiencing higher education beyond the borders
of one's own country can irrevocably change a person to their core.
It can set them on a new life journey, and oftentimes, it extends to
others-rippling positively through the lives of countless friends,
colleagues, and acquaintances-both at home and abroad. The cover
story of this issue, "Pathfinders," reveals how a study abroad experience reverberated through the lives of young men and women who
went on to pursue varied and influential careers-a diplomat, a news
anchor, a college president, and cofounder of a girls' school in Kenya.
Study abroad set these professionals toward career paths that have
educated or inspired many other people to improve their own lives
and to see the world through different eyes.

Also in this issue
The subject of our featured interview is Shiza Shahid, a plenary
speaker at NAFSA's upcoming annual conference, who cofounded the
Malala Fund, named for Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani activist
for girls' education who was gravely wounded by the Taliban in 2012.
Shahid, a Stanford graduate, was inspired by Malala and decided to
make it her mission to help advocate for girls' education through the
Malala Fund. Shahid tells us: "I believe the most important thing we
can do to understand ourselves and others is expand our perspectives
by interacting with different cultures and exploring different realities."
In our Forum column, assistant professor Eric Hartman writes in
"Global Citizenship Offers Better Solutions," that after "more than a
decade of assertions from higher education leaders that we in colleges and universities either should-or indeed already do-create
global citizens" more needs to be done. While there is some good
work being done to help create global citizens, Hartman says that
as a community, we need to prioritize the mission of creating global
citizens because if today's students, a.k.a. tomorrow's citizens, take
to heart that they are citizens of the world, and not just of their place
of birth, then we can make real difference in solving global problems.
As you read this issue, and perhaps prepare for the NAFSA conference, we hope you will be inspired with this message: We, as
international educators, can be the collective voice that initiates the
ripple effect that can change the world.
