Everyone was very positive about their experience and indicated that they believe this experience will greatly benefit them for their future careers.

GLN interns and staff shared with Board Directors their experience in helping film the recent GLN promotional videos, including a video produced by GLN intern Marveline Dandin to promote learning Haitian Creole with GLN.
