“Global Connections is my first home here and I feel connected to that. Last year before joining the discussion group, I was so depressed and felt alone. I didn’t have motivation to go out even for a walk, because I was thinking I don’t belong here. But yesterday (June 4 2022) I had so many friends to have a picnic with and spend time with, and it’s all because of you and your efforts to make a friendly welcoming environment for new people.”
“It gives me a meaningful way to connect with other people and other cultures, continue my background in international relations and keep my language skills alive. The best part of being a GC member is that Global Connections is an organization that is trying to facilitate and develop an international presence in a largely monocultural environment.”
“Global connections is much more than an organization that will help you to improve your English. In my case, it is my support system here, I have met great and loving friends through global connections, and it has helped me grow and the courage to reinvent myself as an artist.”
