In Nov. 2016, we talked with Taiya James, a OneGoal – Chicago Year 2 Fellow and Prosser Career Academy senior, about what she’s most looking forward to in college and where she sees herself in the future.

 

What I’m excited about right now is just getting to college. I recently went on a college tour and just being on campus, it finally hit me that this is real. I’m going to be here soon. Give me a couple of months and I’m going to be a college student.

I’m going to do so many things during that time:

I’m going to have fun.

I’m going to complete my school work.

I’m going to join the debate team.

I’m going to pledge a sorority.

I’m going to re-invent myself.
