Bess Georges (College Freshman) “Ms. Sindy is the epitome of a great leader. She helped me stay motivated and focused at times when I felt like giving up on college. She taught me how to manage my time as well as how prioritize. Ms. Sindy helped me look at all of my options and referred to the places that she knew I could get the best information in order to make an informed decision. She is an inspiration to me. She is extremely knowledgeable and always ready to help. She taught me a myriad of things from leadership skills, to money management and professional etiquette. All in all, I am glad that God put her in my life to help me through those years. I will never forget how she took time out of her busy schedule to spend time with me and help me reach my goals. I will be forever grateful to her for caring about me.”
Jairo Perez (School for Advanced Studies) "Ms. Sindy was the first academic counselor I had when started dual enrollment. Today, I am in 1st semester student of veterinary school, and I owe it to her. Since the first moment I walked into her office she was very cordial, she answered all my questions and was very helpful. I always knew I wanted to go into veterinary medicine but did not really know what I needed to do or what pre-requisites I needed to take. She pointed me in the right direction, told me what classes to take to complete my A.A. degree and at the same time be on tract for my pre-vet program. If it had not been for her I would never graduated high school with an Associate in arts degree or had the right classes to start at the University of Florida as a junior in the Animal Science program right after high school. Thanks to her advice and counseling I succeeded in my major graduated early and I am now in my graduate program. Also even now that have graduated we still keep in touch and she is always advising me and sending me positive energy. Ms. Sindy is a great person and anyone would be lucky to have her as an academic advisor."
Andrea Murzello (School of Advanced Studies) "Throughout my life, education has always been at a forefront. In high-school I choose to attend SAS at the Wolfson Campus for my eleventh and twelfth grade year. I knew that I wanted to pursue pharmacy in the future and I felt like a dual enrollment school was the best way to prepare for that. Signing up for college classes, knowing which classes to choose for my major, and educational counseling were all concerns of mine and Ms. Sindy was always there to help. She has a friendly demeanor and a great listener. She always had a genuine interest in her student’s success and it showed. I would go to Ms. Sindy frazzled at times with numerous questions with the least idea of where to start. She would calm me down and help answer all my concerns one by one. I am 22 and am almost done with my doctorate in pharmacy. If it wasn't for Ms. Sindy I do not think I would be where I am now. She truly was a joy and I am so thankful for all her help".
Theodore Thomas (College Freshman) "When I first arrived at MDC I was lost and didn't know what to do or who to go to. When I enter the Student Services building 3 you stepped in helped me get started with my whole college applying application and took me under your wings and mentored me from my freshmen year until I graduated from MDC. Through your mentorship I learned how to become a successful student by staying focus academically and even made the Deans lists that year. Also, you helped me with getting my financial aid every semester and registering for all classes. You helped me find ... Internships in my career of choice. You made sure I understood what it means to be a leader and I will never forget that. With Ms. Sindy's help, I applied for the Disney College Program paid internship in 2008 and was accepted to participate in the spring advantage program. I even took classes on the internship to make sure I still graduated on time. Ms. Sindy made sure I stayed focus and concentrated on my goal ... Once I finish MDC I returned to Disney for a Management Internship and was accepted to be a Disney Leader. Thanks to Ms. Sindy's Leadership I was able to show not only my colleagues and peers what I have to provide as a leader but also a fortune 500 company that I can be a Leader. Thank you Ms. Sindy for giving me an opportunity and showing me that I have what it takes to be successful in life. God Bless you!"
Jolika Delorme (Transfer Student) "My first encounter with Ms. Sindy was during my first semester at Miami Dade College. I started the school year with a spirit of happiness yet fear because of experiences I previously dealt with at a previous University, and was not fully motivated in the major i was in until learning some skills with The Student Pathfinder. A lot of students enter colleges either not knowing exactly what it is they would like to pursue in the future, or following what it is their parents want them to be. By the end of the semester my classmates and I without a doubt ,we all had an idea of what we were passionate about doing. Hearing her story number one was motivating because even through the obstacles and struggles she dealt with, she encouraged us that through it all she made it and graduated taking prep classes and all. I learned that you can't just sit and want things to happen, you have to just do it, no excuses. Learning about our type personalities, things we are skilled at/love doing, fields we may be interested in, salary and hours of careers, study habits, time management, and even future institutions we may want to get accepted to was all very helpful in considering all majors. Most of all ... our vision boards ... made for the first time in my life... was motivating to see everything I dreamed, and aspire to do and be in front of me ... I was able to see it whenever I needed some inspiration or motivation to continue the path that I'm on right now and to do better to achieve the things I dream to achieve in the future from family, career, schools, and everything!! I remember Ms. Sindy showing my class her vision board, and it's amazing to see her accomplish the movement she said she would be doing in the future now a reality. With the help of The Student Pathfinder, I am more knowledgeable of my interests and I am not afraid of my future academically. I am Jolika Delorme and My V.O.I.C.E Matters!!!"

Francine Seymour (Veteran Student) "Ms. Sindy was my guidance counselor when I was in college. You could tell she loved her job. She was always very helpful in planning my degree/goals. I never felt rushed or non-important. She took her time in getting the job done to the best of her ability and made me feel welcomed. For that, I am extremely grateful and would recommend her for college/career counseling to anyone who needs it. "
Antonio DeLeon (School for Advanced Studies) "Ms. Sindy helped me throughout my high school and college education! It all started when I decided to dual enroll some college level classes at Miami Dade College in the afternoon right after high school. Not only did she guide me about how to enroll myself in the classes, but also on the pertinent entrance exams required for every class. After completing some courses, Ms. Sindy recommended me the program “School for Advance Studies” at the Wolfson Campus where I was able to complete most of my undergraduate classes as well as some Advanced Placement courses. She also guided me during the application process for colleges. I do not think it would have been possible, if she was not there for me and my classmates. Her guidance really helped and definitely made the process a lot smoother. I will always be grateful for her patience and dedication all this time, and I want her to know that a piece of my Master in Business Administration and Doctorate in Pharmacy belongs to her. Your guidance and knowledge has been a major factor in my ability to excel educationally and professionally!"
Debbie Lucien (College Freshman) Testimonial: "Here's my testimony: Ms Sindy is one of the most influential people that I have ever met. I literally had no clue how things worked at Miami Dade College, as I was a newly High School graduate. There were posts about an organization named M.O.O.V.E. (Minorities Overcoming Obstacles through Victorious Education) around the campus and thought I should join the organization. It was then that I met Ms. Sindy and other mentors in the program who taught me to not only manage my classes but also my time and finances. I am currently on my way to becoming an Obstetric Physician and the process would definitely not have been as easy as she made it for me. Everyone should get to have either a mentor or someone as caring as her for guidance in College."
Frandley Defile (College Freshman) "As a young college student I really did not know what my career path was nor did I not have the understanding on how to explore a major that can lead me to a productive career. Freshly out of high school this process became too overwhelmingly for me. This all changed when I met Ms. Sindy, she would constantly check up on me to make sure I was ok and guided me with her personal advice. Her advice was always promoting my personal growth and self esteem. I can honestly say that Mrs. Eugene contributed in one way or another to my educational success. She has been the greatest influence on the development of my educational and career goals. Not only Ms. Eugene was an Academic Advisor, she was a mentor that provided guidance, instruction and support. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Economics and Finance and a Master’s in Public Administration from Nova Southeastern University. I am currently an Academic Advisor at Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus as well as full time student at the University of Miami in the Higher Education program. I regard Ms. Sindy as a lifetime mentor and a person that will continue to impact young people lives for many years to come."
Caleb Augustin (College Freshman) "Sindy was an amazing professor and mentor while I was attending Miami Dade College. Sindy taught me effective leadership skills and how to tackle the world whenever situations get tough."
