"I am Dr. King's dream because I have overcome adversity beyond my control.
I work hard every day to treat others as I expect to be treated.
I work in my class and community with pride and understanding that it is a privilege.
I am the Dream of the King that left me with the legacy of his words and works,
that also drives me to become a part of the next generation that will impact the world in a positive and innovative manner.
I will continue to overcome with the tools and skills that I am blessed to possess."
