Freshman Destiny Young is a young woman with a purpose. Four days after starting classes at PBA, Young, a management major with a dance minor, can articulate what she wants to do when she graduates: open a dance studio. Or rather, dance studios, she adds. “I would like to leave a legacy behind,” Young said.
Young, of Leesburg, Florida, is the youngest of three children and the niece of proud PBA alumna Victoria Rodriguez, who works at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago. Young’s education is made possible in part through a scholarship from the Council of Independent Colleges in partnership with the UPS Foundation. The Florida Independent College Fund awarded the CIC/UPS scholarships to Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida member schools.
