On the Job and En­joy­ing It!

DREAM TEEN Magazine - - Letter From the Editor -

DREAM TEEN Magazine was priv­i­leged to cover the GEAR UP youth en­rich­ment pro­gram for the Nas­sau Com­mu­nity Col­lege (NCC). This was an op­po­tu­niy that we have been wait­ing for. NCC agreed to part­ner with DREAM TEEN Mag. The ini­tia­tive is to cover GEAR UP’s progress with stu­dents and to give our reader up­dates. DREAM TEEN Mag also cov­ered the Roo­sevelt Alumni Golf Tour­na­ment with Dr. Julius Erv­ing, and other com­mu­nity events.

Sev­eral com­mu­nity pro­grams that are geared to en­hance our stu­dent and pro­mote ed­u­ca­tion are in the neigh­bor­hoods in which we live. I was asked, How do you find such tal­ent?” “That’s not dif­fi­cult,” I said. We have a plethora of tal­ent in our com­mu­ni­ties.

The girl or boy next door could be the next CEO of a ma­jor cor­po­ra­tion. Though we may spec­u­late on the fu­ture of our youth, un­be­knownst to us, but known by God, we have no idea of God’s plans for us. A great story is our First Lady Michelle Obama. Who would have ever thought a lit­tle girl liv­ing on the sec­ond floor of a two-story house on Eu­clid Street in Chicago’s South Shore would grad­u­ate from Prince­ton Univer­sity and Har­vard Law School. This es­teemed first lady’s story is so in­trigu­ing. She would meet her fu­ture hus­band and the fu­ture 44th pres­i­dent of the united states at the Si­d­ley Austin law firm, and their first date would be the Spike Lee movie Do the Right Thing.

You could be in the midst of a fu­ture com­man­der and chief. They could be among the chil­dren you come in contact with. Spec­u­la­tion is a tool used to kill the dream. He or she may not be per­fect, but they may be in pur­pose. En­cour­age to push for­ward. Your words could be the cat­a­lyst to a mon­u­men­tal dream.
