Abdu’s Testimony:

Wow, being a part of the GCF family has meant a lot to me over the past year and six months. I have so many stories and memories to look back on after I leave, not to mention a wide network of people that are willing and able to support me in my future career. I have been given the opportunity travel within New York City and beyond to share the knowledge I learned at GCF and have a meaningful impact on important issues. Now that my term is coming to an end I feel a lot more confident about finding a job that suits my true purpose and know that I won’t have to settle for mediocre entry level positions in retail, or jobs with no mission towards environmental sustainability. After my completion of GCF, I plan on pursuing a job in the urban agriculture field. For the people young and old that have connected with GCF and me, I hope that somewhere along the journey you were encouraged and inspired by us to continue striving for a greener future. It doesn’t take one individual to change the circumstances of our current world, but all of us collectively to change the way we view ourselves. I would like to share this quote by Winston Churchill who said “Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.”
