Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am is getting behind a major new global initiative to encourage American children to study in China.
Will teamed up with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at the Mendez Learning Center in California on Monday as part of a 100,000 Strong Initiative event. Now, Los Angeles will join in a federal initiative to increase the number of American students studying abroad in China, and 10 high schoolers will be among the first to participate.
Will offered this piece of advice: "Go out there, collaborate, dream. Make a plan to execute, to come back home and tell your cousins, your nephews… just what you're learning. They're going to be proud of you… Let's not mess around. Let's go." Amen, Will.
Would you go study in China?
