GSD stories. She is the person that you want to have as your tour-guide/friend in a foreign land. She asks the questions that make us want to think, to examine, to explore, to double back, and to celebrate the rich tapestry of both what we (think we) understand and what we strive to learn.
GSD programs are building educated and enlightened leaders for tomorrow through global-minded education. GSD helps youth navigate the complex web of global relationships, strategies and obstacles.
I have heard high school students make impressive presentations regarding their experiences working with GSD. Dina simply radiates her enthusiasm for the work, which, in turn, is shared by the teachers and students; all of who are learning so much from these programs.
Through GSD, Dina’s storytelling amplifies voices that are rarely heard or promoted in the Western media. This uniqueness speaks to her willingness to challenge established norms and take risks to connect with children, especially girls, living on the margins of society.
Dina's stories have opened up our children’s eyes to see past all of the bad stuff in the world, and help us realize we are all human, and we need to be there for each other.
Dina's story-telling brings an entrepreneur’s creative problem-solving to a humanitarian cause. She’s that rare person who can show young people how to maintain idealism following setbacks, simply working around them.
I have seen the transformation of GSD students here in the United States as they partner with other students in very different parts of the world. GSD brings a level of systems thinking that enriches learning with real-world solutions.
GSD helps young people in the U.S. build bridges with the unfamiliar, and become world citizens ready to extend friendship and support to people in other cultures. it is inspiring young people to engage in the hope of world citizenry and global perspective.Close
