    Give credit where it''s due. Thank you for helping us highlight the commendable teamwork that goes into a brigade, Komal! This week''s #MyGBStory spotlights so many great people! . @komal_kaler | We need to move past the business of saving lives and into the business of building lives - Ertharin Cousin . These words will stick with me for the rest of my life. Along with the many other skills, hands on experience and knowledge I gained on my brigade, the personal connections I made with the team and community members were the most memorable. The second picture is with Dr. Bernice Dias. She is filled with knowledge, ask her anything, she knows. I was mesmerized by her experience, knowledge and years of wonderful contribution she has given to global brigades. The third picture is with Gina, our brigade translator, but much more than that! Any help we needed, she was there 24/7. She stayed up late helping us prep for the next day and made every effort to improve our Spanish. The fourth picture is with Carlos, our brigade translator. He made sure we reached everywhere on time, was concerned for our safety 24/7 and always there for us. He shared his life experiences with us and is well-known for his wise words and real talks! I am privileged to have met such wonderful people during the medical brigade and to have experienced the long and beautiful greetings and goodbyes. This was truly a blessing. . . . . . #GlobalBrigades #GB365 #MyGBStory #FacesOfGB #MedicalBrigades #GlobalMedicalBrigades #GlobalHealth #Sustainability #SustainableDevelopment #NonProfit #SustainableDevelopmentGoals #SDGs #MakeADifference #ScrubLife #CollegeLife #Healthcare #Volunteer #VolunteerAbroad

    Meet Armando, a GB-famous coordinator and technician for Global Water Brigades! If you''ve ever gotten to meet Armando, you know that his constant smile, energy and passion for water, and competitive nature for ftbol can''t be beat! . What is Armandos favorite part of his job? Brigades. Students and Communities are the best combination. When Armando is not on a cycle of #EatSleepBrigadeRepeat, he can be found traveling the world, outside playing soccer, camping, or cheering on the Green Bay Packers. . What is your favorite memory with Armando? . . . . . #GB356 #GlobalBrigades #Honduras #AguaEsVida #FacesOfGB #MeetYourCoordinators #GB365 #MyGBStory #WaterBrigades #GlobalWaterBrigades #WaterIsLife #WASH #PorLosNios #EatSleepBrigadeRepeat #Sustainability #SustainableDevelopment #Nonprofit #SDGs #SustainableDevelopmentGoals #Volunteer #VolunteerAbroad #MakeADifference
