Everyone told me, ‘You can’t work in the corporate world, and be yourself.’ I was always being told there’s something wrong with me or, ‘Something wrong with the way you look. You’re not feminine enough, you’re not masculine enough. What are you? If you’re not a girl, do you want to be a boy, do you want to be a man?”
I think it really speaks to the excellence and design of this program that throughout the program you have time to sit and reflect on what you’re learning.”
