The winners of the Gilman Scholarship Program’s 20th Anniversary Video Contest have been selected! The judges were beyond impressed by the creativity exhibited in the dozens of entries we received. We decided this would be a great opportunity to invite as many of our winners as possible to share with our audience how they created their entries and much more. For this first chapter in this two-part series, we have invited two runner-ups, Morgan Kennedy (Ireland, 2012) and Devin Sommer (Turkey, 2011) to join us. You can view both of their entries on the Gilman Scholarship Program’s YouTube channel.
Devin is an Artist, Grant Writer, and Small Business Owner in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. An outspoken advocate for international education, he believes it should be a core component of the education system. Blending business and the arts, Devin collaborates with community leaders and international artists, seeking to overcome cultural divides by engaging youth at home and abroad through the mediums of Blues, Jazz, & Hip Hop.
Morgan is a public health communications professional currently working in indigenous health and knowledge translation. Part nomad, part foodie, and part photographer, she has fallen in love with world travel since her first study abroad experience in college. She has an appetite for adventure and is guided by her belief that health is a human right.
