I can make a difference

VITA showed me that I can use my knowledge and skillset to impact people, and this experience demonstrated a practical way that I can give back to the community and make a difference for all types of people.

I feel more confident than ever

I’m grateful for the client-facing experiences I had, the impact I was able to make on people in my community, and, as a whole, I feel more confident than ever that what I’m studying is the right field for me.
