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 life and respecting the right of others to do the same. It is about good morality, strength of character and one’s own opinion. In other words, it is about friendship, fun and freedom.”
