  • I chose to be an Entrepreneurship major because it taught me how to expand the skills I was developing in my other major. Entrepreneurship gave me the chance to test and stretch the other things I was learning and apply them in new ways. It also exposed me to so many more opportunities to work in ways I hadn’t before. Entrepreneurship gave me the confidence to tackle any project I want to. I know I will always be supported and have so many mentors, coaches, and cheerleaders rooting for me, even though I’m no longer there!
