Kareem Wasef


Secretary 2018-2019

Hey! My name is Kareem and I am a senior Biology major from Morgantown, WV.

When I heard about Global Brigades as a freshman, I knew it would be an immense opportunity for learning as it is a unique hands-on experience in the medical field. When I had the pleasure of spending 10 days in Nicaragua and in Ghana with Brigades, it was everything I expected and more. During both trips, I met some of the most incredible people and worked in some of the most cohesive and efficient teams I have seen. I also experienced a lot of personal growth and my passion for medicine was affirmed. I am beyond excited for this year’s trips and I encourage everyone, whether interested in medicine or not, to apply for an experience that will resonate with you for the rest of your life.
