I think being a leader does not necessarily mean to be ahead of others in a society or a group. For me being a leader means to change the unwanted situations...I need to be a leader to lead my next generations to a rightful and better life.
~ MARZIA HABIBI, Afghanistan, AUW Class of 2017

I...look at the Asian University for Women as a bright example of South-South collaboration among developing countries...The World Bank stands ready to facilitate such South-South collaboration in support of the Asian University for Women. ~ NGOZI OKONJO-IWEALA, Former Nigerian Finance Minister and Former World Bank Managing Director
It was actually financial aid that finally made me accept the offer, along with the University's location, multi-cultural environment, international curriculum, and faculty.

I have also realized my own value, position, and responsibility in society. ~ ASWATHY VIJAYKUMAR, India, AUW Class of 2013
