The Programme was an eye-opening experience even more me as an ambassador. It was an environment I felt gave the opportunity for people to really be themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin when sharing opinions, creating ideas and communicating with others. The content in the programme was interesting and engaging and I thought that it was relevant and useful for the participants as the things they learnt and developed were transferable into life after the programme.
When we first spent free time outside in the college gardens, it was a warm summers evening and, I was playing games with a group of girls from China and India and despite maybe slight language barriers I felt like I was playing these games with people I had known for such a long time, it was like all our differences and opinions and judgements were put aside and we just accepted each other. It was so nice to feel like you were somewhere with people that accepted you for you and not what you looked like, where you were from or what school you went to, just you. GSL showed me how society should be and how important it is that I do something
I loved playing cards in the evening with the young people and seeing the GSL Inspire moments this year. Watching Asha present was brilliant and being inspired by Dharti talking about boys should be able to cry as it’s healthy for them
The transformation that happens from the first day to the last week is incredible. The participants establish lifelong connections and still continue to communicate to this day. Events such as the Talent show allow participants to really shine and provide excellent bonding opportunity. The participants this year really stepped up to the bar this year with their enthusiasm and passion. I wish them well and hope they can continue to collaborate between continents
