Jon Coleman – New Haven, CT / Duke University

I have been actively involved with DCI since 2007. I was given the opportunity to go to Bangladesh as a volunteer representative of DCI, and spent almost two months in a rural village. This was truly a life-changing and eye-opening trip for me. I came to recognize the power of combined volunteerism to bring change to the lives of people in poverty, but also the power of one person’s vision to change the lives of thousands. My trip inspired me to get even more involved with DCI, and it confirmed my lifelong desire to work for the betterment of humanity.
