Being a part of the foundation has opened so many doors for me. I find that when I need that extra push of motivation, the foundation is always there to help. Everyone who is involved with the foundation is always ready to help in any way that they can. The group of women who run the foundation have become a role model to me and many other young women at a time in our lives that we need strong mentorship. I find that any time I think that I have exhausted all my options I can turn to the foundation for guidance and advice on what steps to take next to continue towards my goals.

Without the foundation’s support through these last 4 years that I have been involved, I am not sure I would be in the same place in my life that I am now. They have given me valuable industry connections along with priceless guidance through a challenging time in my life. I am so thankful to be allowed the opportunity to be involved in such an amazing community of people and be given the chance to shape my future the way I envisioned it with the help from this foundation.
