What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?
Having the mentality that anything is obtainable. The Dream Team staff helped instill within me that college was 100% obtainable regardless of my circumstances, environment, and demographics. If there is a will, there is a way.
What are your goals for the future, and what goals have you achieved?
My goal for the future is to secure a full-time position in a Media/ Sales & Marketing related role after graduation in May 2023. One of my goals prior to arriving at IU was to network with a variety of different individuals, and so far, I’ve made lifelong friendships, and connections I know will help me with future endeavors.
What is one of your favorite memories of the Dream Team?
My favorite memories with the Dream Team would definitely be all the campus visits we had to various colleges. It helped with the transition to a Big Ten Institution and helped me prepare for what to expect as a student.
What is one piece of advice you would give a Dream Team student who has recently graduated high school?
The biggest piece of advice I’d give to a recent Dream Team grad is to not be complacent and aim for the stars. In today’s world, you can accomplish anything you want to pursue. So boss up and get to it.
