 Mykel’s Plans After Graduation:


“As of now, I’m in tune and listening for God to direct my path. I have many skills and talents, which makes it extremely hard to choose a path. Hopefully I’m able to continue what I am doing but on a bigger scale: specializing in social media, art, marketing, advertising, and creative services. I’ve got interviews lined up for these types of jobs in both Miami, Florida and Dallas, Texas. Hopefully I make the right decision.”
