Bowie, MD (PRWEB) October 19, 2006
Dante Lee, CEO and president of Diversity City Media, was recently honored as the featured alumni speaker at Bowie State University's homecoming.
Lee, a Maryland native, graduated from the University in 2002 with a Bachelors degree in Computer Science, and went on to launch Diversity City Media - a successful marketing and public relations firm now based in Columbus, Ohio.
Lee's firm is best known as the company behind BlackNews.com - an online African American newspaper, and BlackPR.com - an extensive press release distribution service to the African American media.
During the homecoming celebration, Lee spoke to a group of students, alumni, and faculty about his new book How To Think Big...When You're Small. He encouraged the audience to be persistent about their goals, and understand that dreams don't happen overnight.
"Stop procrastinating," Lee said. "Procrastination kills a lot dreams. Too many people talk about their goals, and months later - they're still talking about them."
Following his speech, Lee vowed to help his Alma Mater in any way that he can. "I am more than willing to offer my company's services to help Bowie State," he told the alumni department and president Mickey Burnim.
