Being a part of this program has been really important for me. When I joined, I thought no one would understand my struggle unless they worked in Insurance and that was the furthest from the truth. Actually, everybody here understands.
We are brought together because we are ambitious and we have that strong passion to make it. Sometimes at work we are told to just be happy where we are, that we have gone far enough and we should continue to work and wait; that we will be fine. Mentors have reminded me not to sit and wait and to advocate for myself.
