Hello Global Glimpsers!!! My name is Ryan Nguyen, and I will be one of your Global Glimpse Leaders (GGLs). I hope you all are packing and getting excited for our trip. I teach English and World History at Evergreen Valley High School. As an avid outdoorsman I have traveled all over the US and throughout the Caribbean, including my trip to Nicaragua with Global Glimpse last year, and I’m looking forward to another great trip with Global Glimpse this year.

Our program coordinators have done a marvelous job preparing many awesome activities for us all, and we have a great GGL team supporting you all. I’m looking forward to meeting you all, and to being a part of this special journey we’re all about to embark on. One of the things I am most excited about is getting to engage with, and learn from, the indigenous culture.

I became a GGL because Global Glimpse offers an opportunity to explore another society, culture, and lifestyle in a unique and exciting way. I strongly believe in the core values of the organization, and in what it’s trying to achieve. I think this is going to be a life changing opportunity for everyone involved, and I’m really excited to be a part of it.
