SUCCESS STORIES

Simone Dixon

Age: 27
Riviera Beach, Florida

Riviera Beach YEP  had a tremendous impact on my educational and career journey. I would have not been able to accomplish achieving higher education from the University of Florida and Indiana University, as well as, getting exposed to various opportunities in life, without the organizations’ support and guidance.

After graduating from the Indiana University in 2017 with my Master’s degree in Accounting, I moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and currently work in Public Accounting. I joined Price Water House Coopers Accounting firm as an Assurance Associate, working on fortune 500 companies, large banks, and private companies financial statements; ensuring they are prepared accurately. In September of 2018, with YEP support, my mother and sister joined forces to create the Patricia Tillman & Daughters Riviera Beach Scholarship.
