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

While in Dream Team, I gained confidence in myself, and I believe in all my dreams, and I know they are achievable. Thanks to the Dream Team, I will take this confidence with me.

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

My goals for the future are graduating from college and obtaining a good job. Goals I have already accomplished are placing at state in wrestling two times, graduating from high school, and getting into college.

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

One of my favorite memories from Dream Team was the summer trip to Western Nebraska Community College after my junior year. We went to a fun place where we were able to play mini-golf, bumper cars, and other fun activities.

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.

Michael was also featured in our “12 (Week) Days of Dream Team” series, and you can catch his video on Facebook and Instagram.
