One of Mr. Ho’s most fulfilling experiences was traveling to Belize as part of a grant program relating to global education and business. As a representative from the Metropolitan Community College, he had an audience with the prime minister to discuss trade and related topics. Although the 45-minute conversation focused mainly on important figures such as former President Bill Clinton and Henry Ross Perot, Mr. Ho enjoyed having the opportunity to portray the benefits and virtues of trade and to hear about the concerns of a small country that was vitally trying to protect their assets. This experience afforded him an entirely new perspective on trade, which he was able to bring back to his students at Metropolitan Community College. With the recent inauguration of President Donald Trump, Mr. Ho believes the world focus will once again return to the importance of trade.
