YYGS - friends forever
The YYGS program is an amazing summer experience for motivated high school students from around the world. At this program, I met 200 teenagers from more than 50 different countries, which was an unparalleled experience for me. It was exciting to meet young people from so many diverse countries and cultures! At YYGS, we participated in a range of thought provoking activities, seminars, lectures, and even a simulation. We learned about “Grand Strategy” and how to analyze the impact of international issues in today’s connected world. The excitement was never-ending and I still wish the program were longer than it was! Really, YYGS was unlike any other summer camps that I have attended to date, both in scale and diversity. In 2 weeks, my friend network expanded to more than 50 new friends from different countries, and five continents!

We all keep in touch and update and support each other all through our evolving educational careers. YYGS taught me how to critically think about global issues and also ponder over what we can each do as an individual to bring about change. If not for YYGS, I would never have met any of these outstanding young people. My YYGS experience also helped me in school because it enhanced my skills of how to think critically. YYGS is an experience that I’ll never forget!

Thank you, Yale University for the amazing YYGS program! It is truly a one of a kind program! I encourage all motivated high school students from around the world to make the trip to Yale- it will change your life and perspectives on life!
