On October 28, the SEED Miami community gathered for a uniquely SEED tradition: the annual Dream Ceremony. We invite our 6th graders to publicly share their dreams for their own futures with their families, new classmates, and supporters. They also receive a SEED Miami pin from a SEED Miami staff member or supporter, serving to officially welcome them to community.
Our sixth-graders haven't been with us long, but they've already learned to dream big: our students shared their aspirations to become doctors, professional athletes, and above all, college graduates. The Dream Ceremony also gave them an opportunity to see their futures come to life in the form of Ayodele, SEED DC '12 and University of Pennsylvania '16. As the Dream Ceremony's keynote speaker, Ayodele encouraged SEED Miami's newest students to take advantage of all the opportunities SEED has to offer and to never lose sight of their goals.
