“The goal is for every student on campus to declare a dream,” says The YDM founder and Executive Director Ferrell Fellows. "We believe that when students have a vision for their life, they are more motivated to excel academically, more prepared to make career and life decisions, and more likely to impact society in a positive way," adds Fellows. The full day of events will delve into the fashion, film, and music industries and will offer a platform for speakers to discuss their unique journey to success and expose students to the hard work required to achieve a dream.
AT&T, Abercrombie & Fitch, Sodexo, and the Howard Homecoming Committee sponsor Dream Day, which features celebrity panel discussions and expert master classes. In addition to the priceless networking opportunity, The Glu Agency and Indique Hair have donated five internships exclusive to Dream Day attendees. Additionally, over 25 companies will participate in Dream Day’s Career Showcase, which will expose students to new career fields and opportunities.
Inspirational speakers joining the Dream Day panel include Jamie Foster Brown (Sister 2 Sister Magazine), Amir Windom (Music Executive), Elton Anderson (Celebrity Photographer)
Howard University gets the privilege of being the first campus to experience Dream Day. Jamal Minor, University Coordinator for Dream Day, says “the program will be a win if more students on Howard’s campus begin to define their success strategies."
