A few words from Trinity Brown, a 2017 student:
"My experience at Gordonstoun International Summer School was truly life changing. This experience is one I can never forget. I’ve met so many remarkable people from all over the world. The students I met enhanced my understanding of different cultures and gave me the opportunity to view the world in many different perspectives. Not only have I met these amazing people but I’ve made life-long friends with them. Thank you for giving me the best summer I’ve ever had. Spectacular occurrences don’t usually happen to someone like me. I’m so grateful for this and your generosity. With all that I’ve learned, I will use to my advantage and set out to do great things. I’ve gotten to do the imaginable."
Being the first generation in my family to be attending a university in the united states is something I'll ever be grateful for. It is a rare opportunity, and I do not take it lightly.
During my sophomore year I knew that I wanted to apply for internships for the summer, but I didn’t know where to go and if I would even get in.
