Summer Leadership Program, 2018
"The knitting workshop was fun, because I had never expected to be good at anything other than math, but I'm very good at knitting!
"The best advice for me was to be yourself. This is very important advice but many people don't care. Always being yourself is the key to success."
"Learning about managing money on the trip to Merryl Lynch was helpful because I have a tendency to spend all my money on food and games."
"The trip to the Brooklyn Fashion Design Accelerator was fantastic because I had never thought that fashion is more than just designer clothes. But they recycle and use old things to make new; that's very interesting."
"The Creating Your Own Company workshop was very fun because we created our own businesses which is something that interests me in the future. Also our company will help people not only in our community but all over the world."
"When I showed my knitted piece to my friends and showed them that I could knit, they all stood around in surprise. Even my mother was surprised because we thought that only the elderly could knit."
"All the Quartz performances were good, but building confidence was my favorite part because I feel like I need to work on my self-esteem and she gave me a reason why I should."
"The interns at Palm Drive Capital were excellent; their backgrounds and experiences were so incredible to listen to because they motivated me and changed the way I think about unpaid interns. I took a lot of advice and ideas with me."
"I liked creating our business offices at Herman Miller, it made me realize how difficult it can be to create your own office but, at the same time, it made you realize that it is possible to do it."
