Nour Assili • TEDxYouth@UPrep
The Jasmine Revolution, Unfinished
Nour Assili, a junior at University Prep, is an exchange student from Tunisia. She has received the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange & Study Scholarship to spend one academic year in the United States, hosted by an American family. She is passionate about social entrepreneurship, computer science, and Kung Fu. As a cultural ambassador, she was given the challenge of exploring differences and breaking down misperceptions. Her year abroad became the year that redefined her vision of the world as she built international friendships and acquired a global frame of reference when looking at issues.
