Oct. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Washington, D.C. – Two years ago, four women quit their six-figure jobs to follow their dreams, and today they are helping youth fulfill their own. The female quartet, Bria Bass, Antoinette Drew, Ferrell Fellows and A. Nicole Moss, who founded the Young Dreamers Movement Inc. (YDM), will partner with the Howard Homecoming Committee on October 17, 2012, to host the first ever Dream Day. The unique day of events will inspire youth to live with passion, and features entrepreneurs such as Angela and Vanessa Simmons, Issa Rae, star of the popular web series, “Awkward Black Girl,” and screenwriter Michael Elliot (Brown Sugar, Just Wright). Howard University students will enjoy a day of seminars, activities and panels to kick off the revered homecoming.

“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) and Aleta Anderson (Executive Producer of Miss Black America Pageant).

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." The YDM founders, who are also HBCU alumni, plan to take their vision on the road. "The YDM will take Dream Day to various universities and high schools throughout the US, bringing career people, celebrities and corporations to inspire students to declare a dream," says Fellows.
