Edward Micklos
winners 2021 Edward Micklos will continue his academic pursuits this fall at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University studying Global Security and Intelligence Studies. Through hard work and dedication Edward has already earned helpful certifications and gained relevant work experience that will help him in his future career. In addition, he refused to make excuses for himself while faced personal challenges and instead chose to work even harder for the sake of his family and to fulfill his own dreams. When asked what the American Dream means to him, Edward’s response was simple: "The American Dream is an individual’s capability to pursue a career they want and enjoy. In this way, I embody the American Dream because I am working hard to earn a career in the intelligence community, where I know I will be satisfied with my contributions to society. On top of that, I will have the privilege of knowing that my works will enable the American Dream for others."
