What CIEE Ambassadors Are Saying

  • "Don’t be sad your trip ended; your journey with CIEE has just started with the Global Ambassador program."

    Karen X., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "Through the Global Ambassador program, I not only added this outstanding program to my college resume and explored career interests of mine, but I also earned upwards of $2,000!"

    Amber W., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "I am glad I did the Global Ambassador Program because I was able to build on my communication skills and create new friendships. I enjoy talking about my experience abroad and helping students finish their summer abroad application."

    Yaisy V., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "The CIEE staff is very engaged, and you get to participate in a lot of events and are able to better promote studying abroad. It's well organized."

    Pia FC., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "I've been able to share my experiences with people all over the world and have the resources and support needed to aid me as well."

    Kaiqi C., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "Especially with the push of monthly contests, speaking at school events, and the Global Navigator Virtual fair, I stepped out of my comfort zone more than I would have. I approached more people than I thought was possible and worked hard on posters and social media content to promote studying abroad."

    Pia FC., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "It was extremely helpful receiving guidance from CIEE staff when we presented at school. On our own, we knew exactly what to say and helped many students apply for CIEE. We are also making good use of the materials CIEE provided for us."

    Sarah M., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador

  • "Before me, no one in my school had ever studied abroad or even talked about studying abroad. The Global Ambassador program gave me the tools and knowledge to be able to expand studying abroad across my community. I made an impact by being the first person to make in-class and in the auditorium presentations about studying abroad as well as counseling students with their studying abroad applications."

    Isabella T., 2024 CIEE Global Ambassador
