After the amazing experience of Global Shapers, the virtual phase and the Face-to-Face meeting in Chicago many of us stayed a couple of days in Chicago to explore the city and some even expanded their trip to a real holiday. It was so much fun to explore the city with about 70 of us and get to know all the Global Shapers. The whole experience had made a deep impact on me. It is amazing to see how so many people from different countries and cultures and with different languages can work together and you just forget about all the differences and barriers.
When I was back at home, the experience of GS2014 kicked in and I became to realize what we had done in these days and what a great output we created. So back home and at work all my friends, family and colleagues were curious about my trip to the US and I was eager to tell them all about Global Shapers and the great outcomes. Because we did so much in such a short time, my story came out a bit chaotic but the energy we felt during the program was easy to share.
