Having the opportunity to travel to Brazil changed my life. I would not have had the opportunity to participate in such a beautiful, hands-on field experience had it not been for the GSO scholarship.”
Some skills I gained:
- How to maintain eye contact (cultural differences)
- How to apply the skills and knowledge I have learned over the past four years of university
I learned that there are no limits to what a person can do; we tend to set limits on ourselves.
I have a stronger belief in my work, and in my traditional belief system which includes the idea that diversity is powerful and a benefit to us all. This felt like this opportunity was an act of true reconciliation, I feel like a partner working to make our home a more inclusive and safer space for everyone. So that we can live freely and recognize that our differences are not something to be feared, but to be acknowledged and celebrated.
