I got the opportunity to expand both my competencies as well as my knowledge and understanding of my field of study: health sciences.

Without GSO, I likely wouldn’t have been able to go on a similar educational [experience] due to financial constraints. More Canadian students need access to international experiences, such as this one, because it allows us to observe and explore important concepts from a global perspective, as well as experience new cultures, communities and environments.

I plan to use my newfound skills and knowledge regarding cultural competence and the relevance of EDI-DI for global health and community engagement when I enter the healthcare sector to connect with and provide better quality care to my patients.​
