"First, a million thanks for the San Diego summit. I am so grateful my son had the opportunity to experience this magic. He had many, many magical experiences. I was in tears, hearing my new matured, self reflecting, and very conscious about others, not just himself, new boy. His view of himself and others undoubtedly changed. Many of his friends noticed the difference and I am hopeful that through maintaining contact with his new GLYS friends he can maintain this new standard he adopted for himself. As a parent, I can only imagine the wonderful life ahead of him, having all these amazing tools."

...What I liked was the opportunity I had to talk and share with young leaders from all around the world. Though we came from diverse backgrounds, we were all the same. We address different challenges in our lives, but all of us could share a laugh and ride a roller coaster together. At the Summit, I learned that friendship and shared passion can transcend culture and even language. I have made incredible connections with people incredibly different yet similar to myself in so many ways at the Summit. I also learnt a lot of new things on how to help the planet and contribute back to society and I learnt that youths can make significant changes to the world……

“I just wanted to say that GYLS was the absolute best experience I’ve ever had. This program was amazing and I can’t say that enough. I learned so many things about life and myself and everything that as soon as I got home I shared everything I had experienced with all of my friends. I even shared my many skills with my best friend so much that I am helping her to change and be a better person. As soon as I came home and talked to my friends, they all told me they were so proud of me and so glad I got the chance to attend this program because they could see the positive change in me. I also loved all of our speakers. Kathy Buckley is my hero! Thank you so much for accepting me to GYLS and I WILL be there next year! No matter what! Thank you again!”
