One of the biggest things that stuck me today was speaker Dana Barros. I really connected with what he was saying when he was talking about his childhood; all I kept thinking about was me. Growing up basketball was life to me but I guess I didn't follow my passion like I should have. But that's something I learned to do from this day one is to take my dreams serious. It's only right because like he said it's 10 times harder for people who come from a neighborhood like us to get a great job or get into a good school that's why its important to me to take such great opportunities like working for Save The Harbor and being a MLK Summer Scholar. I'm also grateful to have people and individuals from my community like Dana Barros to look up to. I just want to say thanks to MLK, Save The Harbor and John Hancock for everything this summer. I really enjoyed and had a lot of fun and I look forward to coming back next summer!
