Favorite GMT memory: There’s almost too many to count, but one of my favorite memories was passing out the blessing bags to those experiencing homelessness, this experience reminded me of what we can do not only as an organization but as individuals and how much impact we can have on the lives of others. Additionally, I was able to participate at the clinic in Dominican Republic this spring and being able to serve with these communities that otherwise didn’t have access to reliable healthcare changed my outlook on medicine and made me much more grateful for the opportunities to serve others:)
Why did you join GMT? I initially selfishly joined GMT because of recommendations from friends who told me about all of the opportunities they found through GMT, but once I got involved I stayed because of the impact the organization had on my outlook on service. Through GMT I was truly able to understand where my passions came from and how to utilize it to serve others!
