Allisa Bryant

Bryant (far left), a Merriville, Indiana, 11th grader was adopted into a loving family after living in an abusive household when she was younger. She was excited to enter the Dreamers Academy and hopes to one day become a pediatrician. “I want to be a doctor that works with the patient and cares about the patient,” she said, “not one that just writes a prescription.”
