My name is Daniel Ramdeo and I am a graduate of the HYPE Program. If it was not for the HYPE program I would not currently be enrolled in college or have knowledge of post-secondary education. HYPE allowed me to enter college not alone, but with new friendships created within the program. This made my experience less intimidating. I am currently attending Centennial College and enrolled in the Business program.
I was also the Vice President of the First Generation Student Club, and am currently the Representative of the School of Business. I have also gained a lot of experience, both volunteer and employment, with the college thanks to HYPE. My goals and hopes for the future are to continue to create music and apply my business knowledge in the industry and make a profit while pursing my passion.
