2021 Seniors Reflect on their
Step Up delegation to Spain
“CISV gave me a global perspective and helped me understand
current events and diverse cultures from an early age.
I am so grateful forthe lessons CISV taught me, and
I think the broad perspective it inspired
helped me in college admissions and
will help me as I meet new people in college.”
