Why did you want to become a Global Scholar?

Those I have worked with, both in school and while volunteering, who have made the most lasting impressions on my heart and mind, act with respect and compassion towards the spectrum of cultures. They emphasized that working immersed within a community and listening to its many voices is the best way to gain understanding, on a global or individual scale. I believe the Global Scholar’s program is a gateway towards understanding, appreciation, and mutual benefit for the countries involved, as well as granting the students a wider worldview from which to pull wisdom and knowledge.
