Insights From A Dreamer

Jazlyn Dunn

My name is Jazlyn Dunn and I joined Dream Academy in January 2018 as an eighth grader. Before joining the program, I was a little timid and had less confidence in my leadership ability; however, joining the program enabled me to meet great mentors and friends who helped me to step outside my comfort zone. I became a better public speaker after I represented our group in speaking to Pleasant Grove Church about the state of foster care in the U.S.

Furthermore, Dream Academy pushed me to apply to Cary Academy which increased my academic confidence and exposed me to several new academic challenges, clubs and passions, as well as significant figures in my life.

At Cary Academy, I redefined the importance of diversity and equitable representation in my life, learned the importance of advocacy, and developed a strong support group that I still carry with me.

Today, I am a full-time student and Morehead-Cain Scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying Neuroscience and Spanish.
