On Feb. 3rd, Companion Champions hosted their second in-person event, in the Bank of American building on the DSU campus in Dover. The “2021 Vision Board” event allowed students to get creative with the use of crafts and Google Slides, for those who couldn’t physically attend the event.
For this event students were asked to bring their goals to life, by making a poster or decorating a slide. Several students put “money, a 4.0 GPA, and positive thinking” on their vision board.
To make virtual attendees feel included, Companion Champions uploaded screenshots of their Google Slides on their Instagram Page, to showcase their work.

“I loved this event! Really made me think about what I wanted to accomplish this year” mentioned Jordyn Harris, Companion Champions member. The objective of this event was to help students by identifying their short- and long-term goals, to start the year off right.
“My inspiration for this event came from the rough year that all of us have endured during 2020. It started out as what we thought would be a normal year and quickly took a left turn “ruining” lots of opportunities and goals for many! No matter what adversities & challenges we face, we want our members to understand that this year will be different, and we will be successful despite a pandemic. We wanted them to know the importance of having these goals & visions set for the year in order to make the best of what 2021 has in store for all of us!” Stated Mayda Berrious, Companion Champions president.
In total, 15 students attended the “2021 Vision Board” event in person and 7 students attended virtually
