Dylan de Waart
Class of 2019
Dylan de Waart strives to facilitate dialogue between people of disparate backgrounds and beliefs to further cooperation in our increasingly global community. He has pursued his passion by founding Global Buddy, an NGO connecting schools internationally to promote cultural understanding and global friendship through peer-to-peer interaction. He is inspired by his own multicultural upbringing, comprised of Dutch, South Asian, and Surinamese influences from his parents, that has taught him to look for the underlying reasons between conflicting opinions and bridge the gap between them. He’s excited to apply that philosophy to his intercultural and race relations work at the Foundation.
