The Global Citizenship Project Experience


I originally got interested in GCP when I first heard about it one of the main reasons why I wanted to do the gcp trip is because I come from a small town I became interested in gcp from my very first tour at Shenandoah you start by writing an essay about why you want to go why you deserve to go on a trip and what you will bring back to shenandoah from the trip I thought because there’s so much variety and so much culture and art all over the world that people don’t get to really experience I focused on that a lot in my essay and how I want to use that to make a difference here instead of just you know we live our lives boom boom boom I was in class and I got a whole bunch of text messages and emails everybody’s like oh my gosh you got ggp I jumped on my roommate I was really really excited because she had helped me write my essay so we were jumping up and down and screaming in my living room so I woke up that morning and got on my email and had this message that I got into gcp so i actually just jumped up and started running around the house screaming waking all my roommates up saying i got the gcp and then when you’re selected for the trip you get to meet a whole bunch of people who are also selected but you don’t know what group you’re in and you also don’t know what country you’re going to after a couple meetings you finally get to find out where you’re going you are going to Botswana you are going to the Dominican Republic I mean you’re going to Norway (song begins) see the world it takes everything we see the world it takes everything we have to face it without a sound and take a step inside our hearts racing if it takes forever we’ll get there together I’m winding along this road not knowing where you will go no matter what life brings if it’s you and me you’re ready for anything (song ends) I thought that was a really amazing thing that gcp does it immerses you in a culture that you’re not really familiar with and it teaches you that there’s worlds and there’s higher ideals or standards of society outside our own that we could really do well to think about what I really thought was my thing is you get to experience what others are living you get to go and experience all these things and you’re culturally immersed into another culture that’s completely different than yours and that’s just an amazing thing to be a part of (song) here we are on top of the Stars never thought we’d ever get this far we live for moments we come alive in moments like this here we are this is the time like a dream coming alive we live for moments like this we come alive in moments like this (song ends) definitely absolutely do it it’s an experience a lot of schools don’t have so it’s definitely something to take advantage of it there’s a lot to learn from the program go ahead do it write the essay and be ready to write to do this and embark on a new experience because GCP is fantastic (song) here we are on top of the stars never thought we’d ever get this far we live for moments like this we come alive in moments like this here we are this is the time like a dream coming alive we live for moments like this we come alive in moments like this moments like this moments like this moments like this (song ends)
