In honor of Global Brigades Month, we are bringing you a new student highlight every week. These student volunteers were nominated by our Advising Team for their dedication to GB and for going above and beyond in planning and participating on Brigades.
Who: Brett Friedman
School: University of Denver
Brigade: Medical Brigades
Nominated by: Brianna Clarke, Medical Brigades Program Advisor: Brett has been absolutely amazing to work with. Getting flights for the University of Denver group was very challenging and took a very long time but he always maintained a positive attitude and was such a pleasure to work with. He was patient, had a positive attitude, and was enthusiastic, even when he broke his arm in the middle of it all. He has run successful and creative fundraising campaigns and has led his team to incredible success in their very first year. He is a new president of a new club and has taken on the responsibility of being a leader with an incredible dedication and enthusiasm. Global Medical Brigades is thrilled that Brett will be coming down to Honduras with his group on March 18 for his first Medical Brigade.
We asked Brett: What was your most memorable Brigade experience and why? How has your Brigade experience impacted your life back home and on campus, or future career and education plans?
