Dr. Aldona Wos and Nikki Hayley Kick Off Elon University’s 2019-2020 Speaker Series
Dr. Aldona Wos, former ambassador to Estonia, moderated a question-and-answer session with Nikki Haley, former South Carolina governor and former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Nikki Haley was the featured speaker during Elon University’s Fall Convocation in what was the first in the university’s 2019-20 Speaker Series.
Drawing from her experiences growing up a minority in South Carolina, a state she would later lead as governor, Nikki Haley said she learned to focus on the similarities between people, not the differences. It was a lesson she said she would later lean upon as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations as she looked to find common ground while promoting the country’s values and interests.
