GPT taught me how to work efficiently with those of a different culture that function professionally in ways different than on my own.Miguel Robles, B.S. Communications Studies '18, GPT Attendee , Peace Corps Volunteer in Indonesia
GPT [is] a really great way to make global friendships. I'm from South America, so I already know a lot about Latin American cultures and I've been to Europe, but it didn't really spark an interest in me. I like learning about developing countries and I’ve always looked towards Asia.Saera Durrani, B.A. '20 International Relations and Global Studies , How GPT Inspired Saera Durrani to Study, Intern and Work in Asia
