I feel more valuable as an individual after going through this program. I also came away feeling like I can really do whatever it is I want. That I’m not stuck in a career box, that I can manufacture my career for myself. I didn’t have the imagination/confidence to not feel this way prior to the program.— Reid McCann , Harvard University 2013
The role of my coach was essential to my experience. She was the capstone to my experience. She was very inspiring and absolutely brilliant. She gave me the drive I had even through the tough times. She was never telling me what I was doing wrong, it was always, “what can I do to help you find success?” that for me was really different than any other experience I have ever had.— Chelsie Dias , Smith College 2014
I’m really, really happy with my experience at Fullbridge. It helped me to get some focus, direction and confidence, with very little to start. I met some incredible people both working for the program and taking the program. I have been inspired by my options and encouraged by my coaches and peers. It feels like a world of possibility has been opened to me. I’m going back to school with a sense of excitement about my future instead of dread.— Anna Gaissert , Brown University 2014
The Fullbridge Program will push you beyond expectations. It will redefine your life. It’ll show you what you’re really capable of in a short amount of time. When we think of education, we have a certain image in our head. I’ve learned so much in a method that I had never expected. And so, be open minded, be willing to learn, and put your heart and soul into it. It’s totally worth it.— Ruben Martinez , Binghamton University 2013
