I’m eternally grateful to this program for helping me realize that I’m not alone in how I’ve tried to navigate through my career as an African American women (woman of color) in my field. The bond that I’ve created with some of these women is a foundation that will enhance my growth, because I will be able to call on them to obtain their support and guidance.  I not only look forward to growing in my career, but also to provide mentoring to those that may have the same concerns and insecurities I’ve had in my career.
