What aspect of being in the Dream Team has stuck with you?
It made me realize college is a doable dream! I didn’t think I’d be able to make it this far, but with the help of the Dream Team, I’m so lucky to be attending my dream university and still have the help of Dream Team members even after I graduated high school.

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

Next semester, I’ll be part of the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL for a semester- that was a dream I’m happy to say came true! I’m also proud to say I’m the Director of Equity and Inclusion within my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, and with the help of the members in the chapter, we’re making changes to sorority life. We’re hopefully making it more equitable for people like me. I’m hoping to work for a horror magazine in the future, as horror is a big passion of mine, and not many people of color work in the industry.

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

I loved going on all the college visits with the Dream Team program and learning about all the career opportunities I had ahead of me.

What is one piece of advice you would give a Dream Team student who has recently graduated high school?
College is doable!! You can get there, and I promise it’s so worth it. Utilize your Dream Team Advisor because they really do care about you!
