Meet one of our DICA Students Stefanie. She’s a 17 year old who understands the value of hard work through the ethics instilled in her by her mother -- a single immigrant small business owner. Like many others, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the family's business and financial resources. DICA provided her with support and mentorship during this time and is happy to say that Stefanie continues to maintain a 4.0 GPA in spite of the many social and economic challenges. She aspires to head to college and dreams of becoming a neurologist. She would not only be one of the very few minorities in the field, but she would also be her family's first college graduate.
