Hello, my name is Kamrul Hussain, a Winning Futures Alumni from Warren Mott High School. Participating in Winning Futures has given me opportunities that many college students can only dream of. I was introduced to Winning Futures from my marketing class back in 2010 and at first was hesitant on whether or not something like this will really shape me for the future.
I was one of three lucky mentees to have Dylan Tanaka as a mentor. He has changed my life through his pearls of wisdom and respect; two things that future leaders need to have. He gave me an opportunity to shadow him and work side by side with him in his real estate business, Pretty MI Homes, where I received hands on training for a year. He even allowed me to make decisions on my own! I looked at him as a mentor and a friend whose hindsight can become my foresight. My mentor, Dylan and the whole Winning Futures family has molded me to become a better student and now I can set short term and long term goals for myself every year.
Since graduation from Mott I have been working with Dylan for a year and a half and I am a Co-Op for American Axle & Manufacturing in their IT department/engineering department. I plan on graduating in May 2015 from Wayne State University with Bachelors in Information Systems Management from the School of Business Administration.
Winning futures has given me opportunities, developed my communication skills and has groomed me for the future. I want to thank Mrs. Tarter for allowing me to write this testimonial and Dylan Tanaka for educating me and supplying me with countless amount of information. Future students should take advantage of a mentoring program like Winning Futures. They should also not think life is easy after high school because the true test comes four years later where we can all hope to have a degree to make our lives a little easier for the future. Winning Futures is a family and building relationships is key and the connections you make can go a long way.
