My United Kingdom Journey

As a part of WMWTA's commitment to West Michigan, the organization awards a deserving student from a West Michigan post-secondary academic institution $1,000 in scholarship funds to expand their academic knowledge for a qualified study abroad program. Joe Duelo of Grand Valley State, awarded the 2010 WMWTA Scholarship, tells us about his journey the United Kingdom. 

"Collectively this trip aided me in learning a great deal about not only myself but about the World outside of Grand Rapids, MI, and everything it has to offer. With financial help from the West Michigan World Trade Association, I was able to further develop my ability to communicate more efficiently across cultures from all over Europe, which I hope will one day aid me in the business workplace."   Read more
