'Inspiring, encouraging and transforming... just some of the words you could use to describe the Europe Gathering GB125. Spending a week in Ireland with my GB International family has been one of my highlights of being in GB. Before the week, I didn't know what to expect but, one thing was for sure, I certainly didn't expect it to be so inspiring and transforming.'
'WOW! What a celebration we had at Europe Gathering GB125. For me, it was amazing to be able to see people from different countries in GB Europe come together. During the event, we participated in lots of different activities, including arts & crafts, outdoor sports and meaningful talks. One of my favourite activities was working in my advocacy stream. During this, we talked about period poverty and how we can make it less of a taboo subject in order to empower young women.'
