The Visionary Program was a wonderful experience where I got to meet many like-minded individuals from very different backgrounds. While the content of the program covered a vast range of key topics for social impact work, the network we developed from attending the program was truly paramount. The opportunity to learn directly from the personal and professional social impact experiences of other attendees was one of a kind, and inspired me to continue my drive to make a social change in the world. I hope that the friendships we made during the program will carry on further into the future.
