As part of my week-long tour here in Abu Dhabi, where we are launching our HOPE Partnership Office with partner, the Emirates Foundation, I am pleased and honored to speak tomorrow at the Abu Dhabi Men's College on the topic of 'financial literacy as a civil right for a new generation,' and the economic empowerment of a generation of young people throughout the Middle East region.
When you cannot find a job, go and create one, for yourself. Nurturing a global generation of entreprepreneurs and small business owners here in the Middle East and worldwide is what I am about.
This is what I call 'silver rights' empowerment for all.
