GITC is an opportunity to meet powerful speakers from all over the world! This platform is an ideal place to learn from others, and to engage in discussion with dynamic youths. It is a wonderful opportunity to be in the midst of such focused thinkers and speakers! Being in their presence was a gift to me and all who gathered there! The diversity of this magnificent group was presented in so many ways allowing its uniqueness to shine. Perfectly organized this conference taught me so much about leadership, purpose and action. I am forever grateful for all I have had the pleasure to witness and experience in such a rich learning environment!
