WGH alum/social media influencer talks success, skills of his trade

When you have a dream or goal, and want to accomplish something, the most important thing you can do is take that first step, explained Warren G. Harding High School alum Dontrell Allen.

“Do something. Take that first picture. Create that first video. Start. If you set your mind to doing what you want, you can accomplish it,” Allen told Harding’s WSCN (Warren Student Communication Network) class.

Allen, who has millions of social media followers, took some time out of his busy schedule on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2024, as a successful social media influencer to visit his alma mater and the class he spent so much time in as a student at Harding.

He and the students discussed creativity, social media opportunities, growth and influences.
