Scholarship Honoree - Milan J. Miles

Hello, my name is Milan J. Miles, a 2018 graduate of Greentech Charter High School of Albany, NY. I am starting my Senior year at Rochester Institute of Technology as a graphics/art major. I should hope to open a Graphic Design business of my own. I also being a Junior Mentor for Team Hero, envision opening a community center aimed to uplift the children of our community. A center where they are taught to respect themselves and each other. A safe place. Free from drugs and violence. Encourage
them to be themselves. Embed in them how important an education is, and that education is the key to changing your life. I just would like to have a program full of positive mind and positive attitudes. Help the young people realize they do not have to be a product of their environment. They can be successful in spite of their environment. We are not just athletes and rappers. We can be whatever we choose.
