I’ve learned there is so much more for college students at Southwestern Advantage than just the money. It’s about building relationships that truly impact people and families. I have been given the confidence I need to reach my goals. My support systems are amazing because no one believes in me like the people who lead and mentor me – not just with my business but also in my life.
I think this experience is particularly beneficial to women because, too often, we are under the impression that confidence and independence are male qualities. This is not true at all. I feel I have been better prepared for whatever comes my way. Every person, situation, and circumstance I come across teaches me something about others, and more importantly, about myself. It’s empowering and rewarding to say you accomplished something this difficult and significant; not just because it shows you’ve been a success, but because it shows that you’re a woman who understands and practices service, commitment, and resiliency.
