"Something that I've really taken from both of my mentors and the program was to say yes to any opportunity. In the beginning it was a no, but I gradually learned to take risks for opportunities"

-Mentee 2018

"I learned how to prioritize and balance work with my personal life through my mentors and the workshops in the program"

-Mentee 2016
