Dejah used her Farther Foundation scholarship to travel to Salamanca, Spain for a Spanish language immersion program.
“Mariela, my host mom, had met me at the bus station in
Salamanca. She only spoke Spanish, which I loved, because then I
was forced to only speak Spanish; that’s really what I was in Spain
to do. I hope that I can inspire other students to step outside of
their comfort zone; go to another country far away and see what
it’s like to feel like a foreigner for once.”
Farther Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing scholarships to low-income students to inspire them to reach their highest aspirations through educational travel experiences.
