I experienced an exponential amount of personal growth during the Silicon Valley Practicum. Through the SVP, I met new people and pushed myself to try new things. Thanks to the SVP I am energized for my future.

There is not a place like Silicon Valley anywhere else in the world. I learned what makes Silicon Valley so special and gained a personal experience of what the startup culture is like. It was truly a transformative experience.

The Silicon Valley Practicum were some of the best weeks of my life. I loved the people, location, my job, my mentors, and the overall experience. The most valuable experience was being mentored by Andy Chan and improving myself as a person and as a worker.
