Manicia Doss has high hopes for her future. In seven years, at age 24, she would like to be on the verge of graduating from college while living with some roommates. Eventually, with a job in the fashion industry, she hopes to have enough money to move out and begin life on her own. Manicia values the importance of family, which is why by the age of 26 she would like to settle down and have a family. She stated that “family is very important to me.”  Manicia hopes that luck will find her a handsome husband and two kids. Although she would like to explore other states during her college years, she ultimately plans on moving back to Oregon: “Oregon is such a pretty state since there’s so much nature and rain. I love the fall and winter so Oregon suits me pretty perfectly.”

In seven years Olivia has dreams to be in sunny California during college. She plans to be living with friends and wants to get an internship working for a high profile company such as Apple, Microsoft or a clothing company. In addition, Olivia would love to look into the career of either dermatology or orthodontics. She also sees herself investing in stocks once she has found a good relationship and is ready to settle down. At some point she hopes to travel worldwide for a year to places such as Africa and Europe. Olivia states that “I want to be free to discover new things and see new places and just travel everywhere I can until I run out of trip money.”

Hannah Baggs, junior

unnamed-1

In seven years Hannah’s dream is to be a professional actress and to be on Broadway. As a part time job, she wants to work at a tea shop and live in New York. Her apartment will be cozy and in the center of all the action of the city — within walking distance of all the famous New York attractions. She said that “living the city dream in New York is something I’ve been dreaming about for years. The chaotic environment of New York is so awesome and I can’t wait to be a part of that dream.” Along with her city dream, Hannah wants to take time to travel and visit destinations all over the world such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
