Throughout my lifetime I feel as though I have been granted the opportunity to experience various cultures, as my Grandmother owns her own travel agency. But through this GMT trip to Nicaragua I gained 3x as much cultural understand and emersion then on any other trip. This trip allowed me to grow as a person, student, and medical professional. I truly believe that this experience has changed me for the rest of my life in ways you can not understand unless you take a journey like this yourself. I know that because of GMT I will be a more caring, understanding, thorough, and overall medical professional because of this experience..- Heather Berman, 20, University of Florida
