Student Voices

Student Voices

My drive to leave a legacy that I can be proud of is what drove me to become a Dream Project mentor. For the past few weeks of visits to Summit Sierra [my high school alma mater], I have been greeted with friendly faces and hugs that show me I did something right with my time at Sierra. The experience of talking with seniors has shown me how much I relate with students. The Dream Project has been a great opportunity and community that I am grateful to be a part of during my time at the UW.
