YES student Syed Asad Ali, a junior at Central Valley High School in Shasta Lake, California, was recently selected from more than 1,000 exchange students in the United States to speak on Capitol Hill in front of his peers, Senators and Congressmen in the Russell Senate Office Building during the EOSW Reception later this month. He is incredibly excited for this opportunity. "I'm the boy that they selected out of 1,000, many more, exchange students, so I'm very happy for it. I'm gonna go back to Capitol Hill, I'm going to give a speech. That is the highest honor for anyone to ever have," he said.
