"I chose GMSI with the idea of learning how to tackle world problems. During the program I learned to think about issues from different perspectives: organizational, economical, and sociological. And last but not least, I found a second family in my fellow students."
"I wanted to find a program that would give me the tools to tackle social challenges. GMSI integrates broad perspectives, which allows you to think differently than the usual narrative, and prepares you to put your skills into action."
"During my internship at Care Nederland I did research on social media use for women's rights in Afghanistan. My research gave me even more insight into the challenges that women in Afghanistan have to face every day."
