About Us

GIC Argentina Founder

Many people ask me how GIC Argentina was started. It began more than 10 years ago when my son went for a year to Japan as a student. It was truly a life changing experience for him, and was an eye opener for me as a mother to see how studying abroad could enrich someone’s life so much. I love seeing how living abroad can open peoples minds, make them more well rounded and more enthusiastic for the possibilities in the world. One of the best feelings I get is when I hear from one of our students a long time after their program and they are still in touch with Argentinean friends. To me, these international friendships are the ultimate cultural experience!
