“Global Changemakers shaped me into a better changemaker and inspired me to launch a platform, Opportunity Desk, that makes it possible for millions of people across the world to access growth opportunities.” ​- Grace Ihejiamaizu, Nigeria
“They change your life in a week, Global Changemakers made me realize my potential and now I'm committed to do my best in the pursuit of a better world”​ - Eric Daniel Ortega, Mexico

“It's so hard to find the right words to define the massive impression, influence and the power of such a GREAT organization. Global Changemakers not only gave me the chance to make many brilliant friends from all around the world, but also granted me the chance to realise my hidden potential.” - Omid Ahmadi, Afghanistan

“The moment I joined this incredible family was the 

first time I realised my true potential and the extent to which I can personally make the world a better place”

​- Eleanor Tack, United Kingdom
