  • For the past few months, Sebastian has been in the process of interviewing for a competitive college scholarship program for when he gets out of the Navy. He had his final interview in NYC last week and he found out HE GOT IN! We will be moving to Connecticut next summer so that Sebastian can attend Wesleyan University as part of The Posse Foundation’s Veterans Program! I’m so proud of Sebastian and all his hard work, during his time in the Navy and this application process. Can’t wait to see what he accomplishes at school!! #posseveterans #possefoundation #wesleyan #wesleyanuniversity

  • I have been holding this in for a week and a half/ 10 days/ 240 hrs/ 14,400 minutes/ 864,000 seconds and the time has finally come. After the final interview on December 5, 2018, I received a call at 9pm that night congratulating me and welcoming to their family and to keep it a secret until now. Today’s date is December 15, 2018, and I can officially announce that in Fall of 2019 I will be attending Texas A&M University. TAMU is one of the top Universities in engineering and my major will be Biomedical engineering. Not only did I get accepted into TAMU i got accepted into the Posse Foundation that will pay four years of FULL TUITION at TAMU. Yes FULL TUITION. I have been going through the application and interview process for this scholarship since August 2018. The acceptance rate for the Posse Foundation is 4.1%, which is 1.9% lower than Harvard University. Basically saying Harvard’s competition doesn’t have anything on Posse. Started with roughly 1,400 student applications. They narrowed it down to only 10 students for Texas A&M. With the other 9 people we will build our posse and enter college with friends already by our side. We will have countless advisors that we will be able to go to for academic and career help. Posse is a wonderful program and a true blessing. I simply can not put all of the benefits of this program in one post, I need multiple lol. However, with that being said ...

  • This was the exact message I shared at the Posse 10 year celebration at K 🤯 _ One of the professors I chatted with said this, “you would only want to make a place better that you love deeply.” I mean, ain’t that the truth. _ It was honestly a more fulfilling experience that I ever thought to visit my alma mater. Part of me thinks no time has actually passed. #alternaterealities anyone? I laughed so hard my stomach hurt + I cried hard too. I was reconciling all the great and not-so-great experiences at K. Some of them mine, and others weren’t (the joys of the gift of empathy 🙌🏾) _ I didn’t even realize I had missed some people until I saw them. It made my heart so happy. I feel refreshed. _ Also, so many people were dealing with who they were in college, what groups they were involved with, how they connected with others or didn’t, etc. _ The gift is in the present moment and it is ALWAYS available. (Re)Connecting with others can be difficult, yet it is never a waste of time. I’m so ready to give back and help someone else navigate the college experience. Whose with me? _ P.s. Just FYI, this is only a snapshot of my thoughts. More to come😉 . . . . . #almamater #kcollege #posse1 #kp1 #posselove #possefoundation #5yearreunion #ogposse #classagent #masterconnector #connectionwithotherismagic #powerofnow #reconnect #youcanchange #kalamazoocollege #giftofempathy

  • President @barackobama donated a portion of his 1.4MM Nobel Peace Prize Grant to the @possefoundation in 2010. . . I’ll never forget my first “Posse” experience as an outsider. Seeing @tjkima form bonds with his “posse” as he ventured off to college, hearing their stories, getting to meet them when I’d go visit him at Brandeis. Knowing their pasts, and seeing them work toward their future. There was something magical about the way this group worked together. This foundation is magical. Aside from making college dreams come true (for under privileged, under served, immigrant families, for tomorrow’s leaders, high potential performers who are overlooked because of systemic inequality or stale measures of traditional aptitude) by lending FULL scholarships to its recipients, @possefoundation also fundamentally changes the dynamic, the makeup, the demographic, of countless schools across the country by helping them to build more welcoming campus environments for ALL backgrounds. . . what is Posse? a national organization recruiting high achieving students from public schools, putting them on teams of 10 to attend college together on a full tuition scholarship, leaning on one another for academic, emotional and social support. It is rooted in the belief that “a small, diverse group (a “Posse”) of talented students can serve as a catalyst for individual and community development” and that the “key to a promising future for our nation rests on the ability of strong leaders from diverse backgrounds”. I am lucky enough every day to count so many Posse scholars among our friends, to be marrying one, to be surrounded by good souls, humans, men and smart intelligent women who I watch break down barriers. I hope we can fill the world with so many more. #possefoundation #posselove

  • And just like that... my second Posse Welcome has come and gone. My job is EXHAUSTING y’all. Student affairs life is no joke and I am totally wiped before campus welcome week even begins, but these scholars and the rest I get the joy to work with on the daily are the source of my energy and drive. My love and admiration for these young, creative, brilliant minds is fierce and I find so much joy in watching them grow and learn. Welcome to NU Posse 6! #nu #northwestern #possefoundation #northwesternuniversity

  • Today Gabriel Gaskin, also known as Gabe, is celebrating 9 years @possefoundation! One of few Posse Alums to become a Senior Trainer, Gabe has dedicated time to fostering connections with Posse Scholars/Alum, university representatives, and former/current staff across the country. He has recruited, trained, and facilitated sessions for over 250 Posse Scholars in Miami and New York City combined. Cheers to Gabe’s dynamism, skill, and talent. I hope he continues to inspire young people, bring joy to many spaces, spark conversations, and dedicate time to building community. Enjoy your second sabbatical 🙌🏽💜 #possefoundation #possealumni #seniortrainer #facilitator #posselove #leadership
