I have become 100 times more self-assured and confident in my own abilities.
I really noticed a change in my attitude towards public speaking and personal branding after graduating from this once in a lifetime experience. I feel empowered and confident and blessed to have met the GirlBoss team and the other incredible girls in the programme. I have made life long friends. "
