Why Some Ivy Athletes Are Special: Penn Hoopsters Zack Rosen and Dau Jok and Their Trip to Rwanda

Read their travel diaries here.

This isn't about a job on Wall Streetor a no-show job, it's not about trading memorabilia for tattoos (allegedly), about getting a car for nothing from someone you shouldn't have dealt with, about playing your sport all summer so that you can keep a starting job and potentially your scholarship.

It's about two Penn students who happen to be basketball players on their trip to Rwanda.

They sought to be inspiring, and they, themselves, were inspired.

As you'll be when you read of their journey.
