What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?
The aspect that’s stuck with me most from Dream Team is we are family…we always have someone somewhere no matter where we go.

What are your goals for the future, and what goals have you achieved?
My goals for the future are to become a nurse and buy a forever home for my child and I. I believe I’ve fought through so many struggles to get where I am that I deserve it. A goal I have achieved was getting a good job to support my daughter until I am able to accomplish my next goal to become a nurse.

What is one of your favorite memories of the Dream Team?
My favorite memories from the Dream Team are all the college field trips we took and all the study groups that helped me feel like I mattered and could go anywhere in this world.

What is one piece of advice you would give a Dream Team student who has recently graduated high school?
A piece of advice I would give to recent graduates is that even though each of us has a past, each of us also has control of our future. If you strive for success and continue to grow, you can go anywhere you want in the world and become anything you’d like.
