“There is no way for me to honestly say what my best experience with Global Outreach has been. Through all of it, from the retreats to the fundraisers, and from the long days of volunteering to the powerful late night reflections, I can probably pick outa thousand moments thatwill be imprinted in my mind forever. What I have learned is that these projects change people, and to now be working to give other students that opportunity is exactly what I want to be doing at this point in my life.”
