“At YYGS, we’re all coming together from different parts of the world with no preconception of what culture we’re supposed to assimilate to, so immediately we create a new culture where people are free to be themselves, show their quirks, and celebrate their differences. It is that dynamic culture that I miss most, along with my global best friends, knowing that we will probably never have an experience like this again.” –Allie Ho, Canada, 2019 Alumna
