1. What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?
Something the Dream Team taught me that has stuck with me is that I should never be afraid to dream big.

2. What are your goals for the future, and what goals have you achieved?
My goal for the near future is to get into the school of music. A goal that I have accomplished was to use my first semester to get comfortable with college life and the schedule.

3. What is one of your favorite memories of the Dream Team?
Some of my favorite memories of the Dream Team are any time I went into the office of my Dream Team Advisor, Edith, and chat while working on scholarship applications.

4. What is one piece of advice you would give a Dream Team student who has recently graduated high school?
One piece of advice I would give a recently graduated Dream Team student would be to not be afraid of doing what they think is best because there is more support for them if they feel like they are going off track.
