Thank you PROMISE Program

A couple of weeks ago, I would have never imagined that I would be climbing a vertical ladder held up by ropes (that were held by friends) while being harnessed and supported by friends, yet this is exactly what I did.

A couple of years ago, I would have never imagined that I would be in a PhD program, yet here I am. I love it when we get the opportunity to accomplish goals that we haven't even realized that we've set. Thank you PROMISE program for providing such amazing opportunities and for always being open to input from us as well!!

I totally agree that PROMISE has helped us realize and accomplish our goals, providing us with the support and skills we need to succeed. Whether it's attending success seminars or participating in the retreat, all of these events give us that extra push we need sometimes to make things happen!
