“I preach in my school that we are the next generation to change the world for the better and I have to practice what I preach because of that and he is somebody I look up to all the time,” said Samir Hassan of Harold Washington College. “He taught I think what I like to say is little brown girls like me that you know we can have a dream and you can be a certain color and certain race a certain gender and still have big dreams and aspirations,” said Athena Guizar, a Harold Washington College student.
