Michelle Obama is using her time in China to promote the power of technology and freedom of information.
During a speech at Peking University in Beijing Saturday, our First Lady told students that the free flow of information is crucial “because that’s how we discover truth, that’s how we learn what’s really happening in our communities and our country and our world.”
She added that new technology can “open up the entire world and expose us to ideas and innovations we could never have imagined.”
“Time and again, we have seen that countries are stronger and more prosperous when the voices and opinions of all their citizens can be heard,” she said.
