Project Propel Blog #1: The Beginning

This is my first blog, and I just wanted to have some fun with it. (Every two lines should rhyme)

When you see an opportunity, take the chance

For you do not know the difference it will make, good or bad

But trust and hope, and continue to dream big

That the opportunity you take will be well worth the risk

It started at the SAPPHIRE conference, in the beginning of May

Hopped on the plane to Orlando, didn’t know what would happen next

A week in Florida, it was definitely fun

Didn’t know my life would be changed in less than a month

From speakers to presentations, from demos to networking

I learned so much from the week, the conference was breath-taking

So many people were there, it was a sight to see

My eyes were opened to a whole new world of possibilities

But as amazing as everything was, there was one specific highlight

The signing of Project Propel is what truly changed my life

Many people were planning, thinking of minorities just like me

Youth with talent, but not many opportunities

Project Propel will change that, one student at a time

Skills + talents = opportunities, a movement has begun

I was the fist lady of the project, and Julian the the King

DSU, BEN, SAP, & ASUG, one big family, one great team

This movement starts with us but it is going to change the world

Every second is important, what a great future is in store

From student to student, from school to school

DSU is ready to do a great job as the center of excellence for all of the HBCUs

I am honored to be here, this is a dream come true

Never thought I would have the chance to both work and go to school

SAP is in awesome company and this project is grand

This is sure to change the lives of families, friends, and generations
