Congratulations to our Student of the Month Recipient



Name: Danny Dickson School: Felix Varela Senior High School

Danny is a graduate from Felix Varela Senior High School.  He served as the Vice President for his school’s chapter. He’s been an active member of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project for three years.  Ever since he joined the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project he noticed his academics improved and he was recognized by his school and the Miami Dolphins as Role Model of the game.


Danny loves to volunteer and help his community on his spare time.  He plans to attend Miami Dade College for two years and after that attend Florida International University to major in law with a minor in Political Science.  However, after college he plans to practice law as an immigration lawyer and establish his own law firm.


He believes that the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project has impacted him in many ways such providing mentors, unique opportunities such as meeting Congressman John Lewis and by teaching him many leadership skills.


When it comes to role models Danny considers his brother Steven as a role model in his life.  He feels no matter what adversities he may face or any struggles he always promotes positivity, optimism, and most importantly to be fair to not only others but to yourself.
