IN THEIR OWN WORDS

“I never had the opportunity to learn about a company from the inside. No one around me has a regular job in a company, so I really had no clue of how the corporate world works and was even frightened by this environment. When I started the Mini Company program I was really nervous and afraid of not performing well or finding my spot as it can be in the class room. It was quite the opposite! I took on more and more responsibilities and felt at ease! Today I feel much more confident for the future!"
