“I am not usually one to put myself out there. After this whole experience working with the companies and visiting a country I’ve never been to, I feel like it definitely brought me more confidence in myself and my communication abilities. I was very surprised the first day we went to Venture Lab how everyone we met was very open to what we had to say and it completely proved my doubts wrong. I think that was a huge eye opener for me; I felt like what I said mattered, which is what gave me the confidence I needed. I feel like this will allow me to be more comfortable when I am in a business setting or even in a classroom setting. Going on this trip allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, and I think has changed the way that I carry myself for the better.” -Kaitlyn Wallace ’21
