We would like to congratulate this year’s winner and recipient of the Become Your Own Dream Fund Scholarship – Yusif Noori , from Robert F. Kennedy Community High School.

In the fall, he will be attending Hunter College, where he will continue wrestling. Yusif has always been available to help and volunteer, showing real enthusiasm for learning. He has lead by example for other students with his intelligence and work ethic. Yusif has been involved with wrestling and martial arts. When asked about Yusif, everyone agrees that he is patient, generous in helping, and can be counted on. 

He enjoys wrestling because of the opportunities he’s been given and the great life lessons he’s learned. 

“What an incredible person. I was impressed by his character. I also have to say this year was a very tough decision. It was between two great human beings”, says founder, Hooman Tavakolian. ” I am certain they will both succeed and do great things with their lives and give back.”

We are pleased to have added his name to the ranks of Become Your Own Dream Scholarship Fund recipients!

Congratulations, Yusif!
