I truly believe that studying abroad taught me things that I would not have been able to achieve here (in Canada). The best thing about GSO is the ability within the program to meet the needs of marginalized students and provide them with opportunities they would not have elsewhere.

I think that more Canadians should study abroad because while it benefits a student in countless ways, what often gets overlooked is how the experience also benefits the home country.

I am now working with Immigration Canada, a career I do not believe I would have without my GSO experience opening up my eyes… I have achieved so many of my goals and am continuing to work toward new ones with the skills I have acquired while abroad. ​
