What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?
Dream Team gave me so many opportunities that I would never have dreamed of. Thanks to them and their kind generosity, I was able to earn over $28,000 in scholarships. They helped me feel like I was important even when I was struggling and didn’t believe I was enough.
Where would you be if you didn’t join the Dream Team?
If I didn’t join the Dream Team, I probably wouldn’t have been able to attend college and, even better, do it being debt-free.
What is one of your favorite memories of the Dream Team?
The most beneficial activities to me are the ones around paying for college and how to be successful in academics while balancing other aspects of my life. Learning about different ways I can pay for college has encouraged me to not give up on my dreams of being a college graduate.
Is there anyone you would like to thank?
I would like to thank every single person that runs Dream Team. They are the most passionate, caring, and devoted people I’ve ever met. They go above and beyond what is needed, and I can’t thank them enough for believing in me.
