" Working with Shamiri has been a life-changing experience"

Being a Thrive! Fellow has been a life-changing experience. Being a Thrive! Fellow allowed me to build my confidence when I needed it the most and for that, I'm eternally grateful. One of the most important things that I took away was the importance of validation when listening to other people's opinions and when expressing mine. This is something that I apply in my interactions until now.

What I Enjoyed The Most

Most Difficult Things
