What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?
An aspect of being in the Dream Team that has stuck with me is that they are always there for you. They will help you even after high school. It is hard being a first-generation in everything, but the Dream Team is there for you and every step of the way. I really appreciate that.

What are your goals for the future, and what goals have you achieved?
My goals for the future are to graduate undergrad at MSU and attend law school after. Some goals that I have achieved are that I have changed my introverted habits, such as staying quiet in class. I have been confident and now participate in class. I have also achieved much to become an independent Hispanic woman.

What is one of your favorite memories of the Dream Team?
One of my favorite memories of Dream Team is when I interned for them in the summer of 2019. Every Monday, we would meet and discuss the course of the week. This memory means a lot to me because it made me feel like I was a part of something important.

What is one piece of advice you would give a Dream Team student who has recently graduated high school?
One piece of advice that I would give would be to go for it. Life is short, and it should be filled with lots of happy memories. If you want to go do that crazy thing that you are afraid to try, “Go for it!”. You only live once. Also, I would say to carry a disposable camera to fill many photo books with memories and happy moments.
