"When I was answering the questions for the GirlBoss Scholarship, I could feel a fire enlighten within me and a spark that something great was going to happen.
The best part is, that gut feeling was absolutely correct. Thanks to GirlBoss for giving me the opportunity to meet such amazing mentors and extremely talented people at Datacom and in the technology industry.
The GirlBoss Scholarship not only opened so many doors for me professionally (I am now working full-time at Datacom! ) but it also given me new-found confidence. The whole experience helped me to build my network and create my personal brand. It’s been more than a year now, people in the office still address me as GirlBoss, and that makes me extremely proud and happy!"
