Surprising International Connections You Probably Never Knew

Did you know that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was once a U.S. citizen?

Did you know that Sen. Ted Cruz was once a Canadian citizen?

Did you know that Barack Obama, who was born in Hawaii and is a U.S. citizen also held citizenship in Kenya and Indonesia in his youth (as dual citizen with the U.S.)?

Fascinating stuff that blew my mind. These examples and more point to the critical importance of having international experience and “global thinking” capability.
