This award matters to me because I was nominated by our student ambassadors... Who wouldn't be proud of that?

Gilbert said when asked about the reward

When asked about the award, Gilbert responded, “This award matters to me because I was nominated by our student ambassadors, which means that former program interns effectively and convincingly communicated what we do, why we do it, and what students gain from the experience. Who wouldn’t be proud of that?”
