Meet Amari Everett
One local Jacksonville student plans to transform from a Buc to a Bison. While it is very easy to get discouraged by the naysayers, one true fighter is sticking to her dreams and plans to make it out.
Amari Everett, a senior at First Coast High School, applied to 10 colleges, got accepted into five, and is currently on the waitlist for two. She enrolled in the Early College Program, where she attended FSCJ for the entirety of her senior year. Not letting this stop her from fulfilling her plans, she will graduate from High School on May 24th. She will continue her journey to college on August 11th with 30 college credits.
When asked why Amari wanted to join Howard her response was,
“I am going to be submerged in a place where I am surrounded by people that look like me and that think like me. Push me to achieve strengths I didn’t know I had, and through all of my struggles that I come across, I am going learn from them. Being in DC is a great location to have networking and truly build on who I am and what I want to become. Lastly, it’s the MECCA!! IT IS LIT! ”
