What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?

One aspect that has stuck with me from being in the Dream Team is that your Advisors truly care about you and your future.

What are your goals for the future, and what goals have you achieved?

My goal is to complete my Master’s program at UNC by Fall of 2021. Some goals that I have achieved is that I finally became a 4th grader teacher in a great community!

What is one of your favorite memories of the Dream Team?

My favorite memory from the Dream Team would probably be all of the field trips we would take to visit colleges.

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 to another Dream Team student is to never be afraid to seek help. College can be challenging, especially as a first-generation student, but there are many amazing resources out there to help you be successful.

 

Alondra also did a “Where Are They Now?” Alumni Follow-Up with us when she was a senior in her undergrad at UNC! Check that out on Instagram here or check the gallery below!
