Testimonial from Karen Young, Duke University, India Community Development 2016

This trip has been a life-changing experience. In terms of my leadership session, I thought this was extremely helpful in developing my leadership skills. I would recommend GVI because I think they do a great job of focusing on work, but also remembering that understanding the culture is important.

This trip has been a life-changing experience. I started the trip unsure of how I would adapt to Indian culture, I have found myself loving learning about more. Their customs, music, and especially food. I realised that there are aspects about myself that are present no matter where I am in the world, but also that I am more adaptable than I thought I was. In terms of my leadership session, I thought this was extremely helpful in developing my leadership skills. Although It was challenging I learned how to balance assertiveness with compassion. I also learned that the idea of development varies depending on context. I would recommend GVI because I think it Does a great job of focusing on work, but also remembering that understanding the culture is important.
