We DREAM – Kim Abney

I remember meeting Kim in ACT 101 summer program my first year at Bloomsburg University. There was something about Kim’s personality that I admire. I knew at that time she was going to do something great. Bloomsburg University set a foundation for students to be their best selves and prepared students to succeed post-graduation. Observing Kim’s success has been astonishing. I was honored that she took a moment to tell me about her program We DREAM. There are a lot of business ventures people can dedicate their time to in life. But it takes a special person to want to give back to the community and provide services to a younger generation and inspire them to have a better future.

I admire and appreciate what Kim is doing in her community. This amazing young lady is a Bloomsburg University Alumni and does not take her education for granted. This Philadephia native from West Oak Lane engages her time and energy in paving a path for students to know they too can be successful and that someone in the community cares about them. She is a school counselor for the Philadelphia school district and involves herself with students daily speaking life into their existence.
