I got a sweet note from Cynthia, who is a Summer Search alum and staff member, about my workshop. Check it out below!
I did not have a chance to connect with you after your workshop, but I really wanted to say THANK YOU!
You were amazing. I got SOOOO much out of the workshop, I could not go to sleep all weekend. I called my friends and repeated the workshop word for word and I told them I would pass along your website information. I am excited about setting goals for myself (with dates and times these goals should get accomplished), and more importantly, I am excited to think more about my values. I also look forward to creating my elevator pitch and just living a more full life, doing the things that I am passionate about.
I could feel your passion throughout your presentation and I wish you were offering what you do at BUILD to young professionals like me. Â
Again, thank you.
Also, Summer Search received a grant from the GAP Foundation and we are going to have Career Discovery Days next week. Our juniors and seniors will job-shadow at different sites in
Silicon Valley. I am wondering if you would be interested in giving the presentation you gave at the to our current students who are interested in business and social entrepreneurship. If you are available and interested, your workshop would take place on Thursday, August 8th from 10am -1:30pm.Â I know this is really short notice, and I look forward to talking with you about this possible opportunity.

Dont forget, if you want the documents from my workshop, check out my previous post here. Or if you want to follow up on anything you learned at the workshop, email me.
I would also love to spread this knowledge out. I realize that I really enjoyed facilitating this workshop and empowering young nonprofit professionals of color. If you know of any groups of young professionals or college-aged people that would benefit from this training, contact me.
