“Pray that I get into Bard… I hope I get in!” Ian asks the crowd at the Inspire Possibilities. On a Friday night an 8 p.m. he got the call… he was accepted! Ian was elated and relieved to receive the call. Ian is a rising creative professional – he is a musician, a urban farmer and aspiring teacher.
Ian is also a member of the Bridge 2 Your Dream program and has been working with Mission Accomplished coaches since October 2016. He began his journey with Mission Accomplished fearful to speak up for what he wanted in life post high school, but he was sure of the careers he wanted to pursue. Today he is a young man who is directing and advocating for his future success.


When it comes to style few are on par with Chantel. This talented young aspiring fashion stylist is now a freshman at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.
Mission Accomplished’s Fashion Edition enabled Chantel to:

  1. Explore multiple career options and discover her passion for being a fashion stylist.
  2. Be exposed to the realities and the behind the scenes business responsibilities in the fashion industry.
  3. Create a professional resume and business cards which will get her one step closer to breaking into the fashion scene.
  4. Exercise her public speaking and professional writing skills.

Lessons From Chantel:

I learned a lot, there is definitely way more to the fashion industry and pursuing a career than I would have ever imagined. I definitely learned it is very time-consuming and EXPENSIVE.
