DYL gave me the confidence to believe in myself, trust my gut, and listen to my heart to turn down ‘perfect opportunities’ to pursue my own unconventional path

Stanford Student

The solidarity I felt with my classmates was very comforting and reassuring. There is power in the realization that you’re not alone and DYL created the space to give me that.
