Congrats to Lareya Brown, a member of the Usher’s New Look Atlanta Leadership Academy since she was in 9th grade. Lareya is the proud recipient of a Posse Foundation Scholarship, which will cover her full tuition to Boston University. While her spark is singing, she plans to study Pre-Med and Business in college and then attend medical school to become a dermatologist.
“I found out about the Posse Scholarship through my school. I was nominated by UNL as well as my teacher. Usher’s New Look played a role in helping me achieve this scholarship, because they helped me develop my leadership and presentation skills. UNL has prepared me for college by exposing me to different types of career fields. During our sessions, successful people from various career fields would give us tips about how to be successful entrepreneurs. Of all our sessions, one thing that stands out about UNL is they teach you about how to brand yourself and that an interview does not begin with the first question, but the moment you walk in.” -Lareya Brown, UNL Atlanta Senior
