SECRETARY CLINTON: Can I just say how excited I am at what all of you are doing, and how thrilled – thrilling it is to see young people like yourselves working on these new ideas, new concepts, new services, new products, new way of organizing. It’s so enterprising, entrepreneurial, as you would say. So thank you for Flat6, and thanks to USAID for being a partner. But mostly, thanks to all of you for having the ideas and being willing to take a risk to do this. And I will be sure to get updates about how you all are doing. And if I ever need a doctor in Egypt – (laughter) – or a game for my children or some beautiful product from somewhere in the country, there’s just so much that you’re doing that can not only be satisfying to you but change people’s lives for the better. So let’s give them a round of applause. (Applause.)

Thank you all very much. Take care.
