"I just wanted to thank you for all your help with my resume and mock interview.

Not only did I get accepted in two of the programs, but I participated in both this summer and got two internship offers for next summer! Thanks for all the help!"
Alumni, Boston University
"I wanted to let you know that this afternoon Ernst & Young offered me an audit internship for the summer and I will accept it once I get all the paperwork from them later in the week. I want to thank you for all of your help and support during this whole process. Without your help, I would not have been in such a strong position to succeed and would not have landed the interviews I did let alone the audit position. Before your class, I barely knew how to write a resume let alone all the other things necessary for a job search. I really appreciate how helpful you were in answering all of my questions as quickly as you did as well as all of the preliminary stuff over the summer in finding contacts to reach out to. The advice these contacts provided greatly helped me as I worked through the process and provided invaluable advice. In short, I cannot thank you enough and appreciate everything you have done to help me".

"Youth in America have suffered for generations due to lack of role models outside of their homes. Celebrities tend to emit a lifestyle that is unattainable and non-realistic. Natascha's humble character and down to earth persona is just what our young community needs. She was gracious enough to speak at a community event in South Providence where she inspired not only youthful girls, but a whole community with her determination, inner beauty, and dedication to the children. Minorities in Rhode Island and the United States as a whole should be honored by her representation."

She knows how to ask questions and tell stories that draw out the dreams and aspirations in others and willingly shines her light on the road to collaboration and success."
