“This program helped me to figure out what I do need to be doing and –  what I DON’T need to be doing.”



After leaving an organization I helped to build, I needed help with figuring out what direction to take my career. I was able not only to negotiate for and secure a position directing community engagement efforts with a prominent organization – but I was also able to identify numerous opportunities to share my story and expertise with a larger audience.



“[The program] helped me plan and actively be more visible in my industry… I actually just sent a proposal out this week for some new work I pulled in!”



“The script that I got started on during the program has been a quarter finalist in two screenwriting competitions. I’ve also  been accepted as a new member at Bromfield Gallery in South Boston! The program gave me a structure for pursuing both parts of my artistic sides – and getting traction. So lots of movement despite the pandemic! “



“Although I probably shouldn’t be surprised, but I was happily amazed to find that I turned to many of the tools and habits I’d learned during my program to push me through these last several precarious months in the pandemic – and am happy to report that I’m co-teaching my first course at Penn on bridging student’s research/activist agendas with professional practice.”



“I have so many interests that don’t seem to have anything in common. I also find that I say yes to too many things, and end up spreading myself too thin. I’ve learned to find ways to combine my interests in an impactful way where I no longer have to compartmentalize my different passions.”
