Travel Reflections

DCIS students who receive financial support from the DCIS Foundation have shared many inspiring stories about what they learned, what they saw, who they met, and what new perspectives they gained. Here are a few things we’ve heard our students say.

“The trip explained life in a way that I could see things from a different point of view.”

Sopannah Son 3“This was my first time out of Colorado.”

“This trip made me really grateful for all we have in the U.S.”

“Now I take my education more seriously.”

Oscar Mendez“Even though the world is really big, there are not that many differences in people.”
