GMT as Ambassadors to the World


I know that you are a very special group of young people. You are self-selected to do this type of international service trip with GMT.  I will assume that you are amongst the 10%ers of our society. I will, also, assume that you are gifted (each in your own way); open-minded / curious; educated; insightful; service oriented; healer-type; probably empathetic; and highly motivated with ideals, principles, and lofty goals. Don’t laugh, I’m serious. I do expect you to live up to these expectations on this trip…And I am certain that you will.

 On this trip, you are amongst the best of our Ambassadors To The World. You represent the best that our nation has to offer to the world. Remember this during the trip. Citizens there will form lasting impressions about our country by your actions. Our national image has suffered greatly, again, these past eight years. Many citizens of the world have again lost more respect for our government. However, please be reassured that for the most part they do appreciate the people from N.A. Even above / beyond the $$ we send, give, spend there.

This is your chance to allow them to learn about us, in a good way, as you learn from / about them.

I am glad to have taken the decision to be part of the GMT experience because it helped me grow as an individual. Engaging in this experience has allowed me to learn many things in the medical field and about the Panamanian culture. GMT is a unique organization that allows many medical students to attain essential knowledge that is required to become a healthcare leader. I can say this is certainly true about myself because I have psychologically and spiritually grown after this GMT journey.- Angela, Junior, Hunter College
