I benefited so much from the relationships I developed with recruiters, professors, and my peers. I took every advantage of the opportunities that came my way, whether it was joining professional groups, working with mentors, or attending leadership programs.
It gave me a strong spirit of entrepreneurship. I couldn’t wait to get out and apply my business knowledge to start and grow a business. It created a level of excitement I carry with me today.
