On Students For Liberty: “Students For Liberty is about bringing people together. It is about showing others that borders really don’t mean anything at all. It is about individuals and their vast variety of different talents and skills. It is about living one’s own life and respecting the right of others to do the same. It is about good morale, the strength of character and one’s own opinion. In other words, it is about friendship, fun, and freedom.”
