Student Spotlights

This week, we interviewed a student from each grade in order to shine a spotlight on the students in the program. If you are interested in being in the student spotlight, please speak to Elizabeth (graduate intern who looks like Stacie).

Jose S., a freshman at Worcester Technical High School.

How did you hear about Dynamy?

I heard Andy’s speech and I wanted working on not being shy anymore. It has helped me be myself more, which is an improvement.

What is something that has happened during your time so far that has surprised you?

I have become more outgoing, and not being quiet so much. I’m now the loudest in my class. It was a surprise to me because I would only talk to friends, but never talk to no one. That’s how I am.

By the time you’re a senior what is your goal?

That I have done my best, everyone loves me (which I’m pretty sure is already happening), learning about the world and college, and sticking to drinking water -since I drank so much water on the camping trip because of Andy.

Kwadwo, a sophomore at Doherty Memorial High School

How did you find out about Dynamy?

Nominated by my teachers and they came and talked to me and I got an application. I was interviewed, I came to opening day and they called me and told me I was accepted.

What is something that has happened that has surprised you so far during your time at Dynamy?

I was not good with people, and not talking a lot. When I entered to Dynamy I talk a lot.

By the time you’re a senior what is a goal you have for yourself?

I want to get all subjects, all A’s. I want my communication to be better.

What is a piece of advice you would give to a freshmen coming in?

You enjoy your time! Life is tough, and this program will help give you a lot of solutions.

Destiny, a junior at Doherty Memorial High School

How did your hear about Dynamy?

They came to my school in 8th grade. Etel came to my school. My aunt use to go and it made me really interested.

What is something that has happened during your time so far that has surprised you?

All the advisors I have had, because a lot have come through.

By the time you’re a senior what is your goal?

Good grades, I don’t know. I want to be able to go on the extended college tour by the time I’m a senior.

What is a piece of advice you would give to a freshmen coming in?

To be honest the best advice is to stay focused and not get distracted by other things. I barely passed freshmen and sophomore year, I didn’t need summer school or anything but it motivated me to stay focused. I don’t allow myself to slack. Stay focused.

Naheer, a senior at Doherty Memorial High School

How did you find out about Dynamy?

My guidance counselors recommended me before I knew it existed. I was pulled out of eighth grade math class and they told me I was nominated for Dynamy YA. From there I researched more about it.

What is something that has surprised you during your time here at Dynamy so far?

How much of a family everyone really is, and how much they want you to succeed. Not for any other reason than just wanting you to succeed. I thought there was some ulterior motive but there wasn’t. It was because they actually want you to succeed. This is why they made the program.

Now that you’re in your senior year, what is one goal you have for yourself before you graduate?

I want to leave an impression and make an impact on the lives of the underclassmen. I want them to succeed and not fall where I fell, and make it easier for them to go along their path towards success.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a freshmen coming in?

Remember to be yourself, don’t try to imitate others because you are not them. Be the best “you” that you can be, because no one else has that ability.
