As a native from a small rural South Carolina town, I know all about the challenges and barriers youth face with choosing their life path and fulfilling their dreams.
Growing up, my parents provided me with exposure to different places and experiences; they encouraged me to excel in school (as most parents should). However, the one thing they instilled in me was to develop a plan to achieve my goals, and that’s what I am paying forward.
Fact: Anyone can be successful.
But success never happens on a whim. Success requires a plan, and the plan must be executed.
Will the plan work the first time? Probably, Not. Will the plan need be altered? More than likely. Do dreams come to fruition with no plan in place? No.
With over 13 years of career planning and continued work in the youth development and non-profit/community sectors, I am helping youth set obtainable goals and go to college.
Youth need to set SMART goals to achieve their wildest dreams and Through Four:Twelve Youth Development Agency, I am empowering youth to shift their mindset, push beyond their circumstances, think big and not just goal set, but “Dream Set”.
