As a Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society member, I proudly represented Kingsborough on a
regional level - which is when I truly believe my journey of experiences began. Having
the chance to be in a leadership role has helped me to decide where to focus my studies.
My dream is to become a registered nurse.
I'm a passionate visionary with character and unlimited potential - a self-taught
guy from humble beginnings, and I love to help others understand how their finances
have an impact on their lives. My dream is to be a successful hedge fund manager in

I came to New York City from Haiti to continue my studies and to experience many interesting
cultures and people. My dream is to establish and run a non-profit organization to
help our youth realize their creativeness and encourage them to dream big.

I'm a first-generation college student of Polish immigrants, and I love science! My
dream is to become a physicist and start a research and development firm. I also dream
to be a PhD one day so people can call me Dr. Doktor!
I enjoy cooking and the culinary arts; and I feel more confident as I learn more about
baking and cooking. My dream is to own my own food truck and dessert bar.
As a child, I often had epileptic seizures and as a result, it was difficult for me
to make and keep friends because they didn't understand what was happening to me.
But coming to Kingsborough has helped me to develop so much confidence that I am now
treasurer of the Society for the Advancement of Management, and have found wonderful
friends and support. My dream is to be a music producer and working in Hollywood.
I'm a retired speech pathologist, and have always been interested in Art but not confident
enough to create a piece of art myself. I am so grateful that the My Turn program
at Kingsborough has offered me an opportunity to express myself through painting;
it's almost like a second dream. I love being surrounded by all the positive energy
in the studio. My next dream is to paint a picture that I can hang on my wall.
My long commute to campus each day doesn't compare to the passion I feel as a Biology
major. I want to help people live healthy lives so they can live longer and enjoy
their families. My dream is to be a nurse, working both nationally and internationally
in impoverished areas and regions of conflict.
