Jakiyah, age 17, is an aspiring interior designer whose Dream was a shopping spree to help her advance in her future career. “When I discovered interior design, I started to love it more and more and decided I wanted to become an interior designer after school. So now that I am going to be going to college, I needed to get the materials required to become that,” she said.
Jakiyah and her family were picked up by her driver, Mr. Ray, from Orange Peel, and whisked away to a day of shopping. Her first stop was Best Buy where she loaded up on all things school related. “I got a laptop for graphic design, an iPad for floor plans, and an Apple Pen to use for design,” she explained. She told us that the item she was most excited about, however, was her iPad!
The next stop was Lynnhaven Mall where Jakiyah shopped for clothes. “Since having cancer, it has taken a lot of weight off of me, so I was able to buy some new clothes. I also bought some stuff for my family and that felt really good,” she said.
After visiting more than 13 stores, Jakiyah, her family, and our volunteer Dream Maker, Shonda, were beat! “So we decided to just end the day with a good old fashioned Chic-Fil-A sandwich in the food court,” Jakiyah told us.
