Yledson "Eddie" Apollon

Eddie Yledson “Eddie” Apollon has always loved film and cinema and is excited to pursue it as a career.  

“When I came to America, the only thing that was in front of us was a TV and all the good shows were on back then,” he said. 

He plans to attend Highline College and then transfer to Eastern Washington University to study film and pursue his lifelong dream.   

“I feel confident, yet weird at the same time,” he said about starting this new chapter in his life. 

He also said he appreciated everything the iGrad staff have done to help support him.  

“I feel like I connect with them on another level,” he said. “I’m able to be more relaxed and less stressed when I’m here.”
