What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

Securing my dream job.

CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP taught me how to lead and the fact that my only limitations are the ones that I put on myself.

How did your CWP experience impact your career? Immediately after graduation? Now?

My CWP experience was a springboard to my career. Leadership is a universal skill and I will always carry that with me.

What was the greatest lesson you learned from your CWP experience?

Don't be afraid to fail. True failure only occurs when you stop trying.


What advice do you have for potential CWP participants? Current CWP participants?

Make your decision for the right reasons. Opportunity is an amazing thing but it does not come easy. There may be 50 obstacles sitting right in front of you. All you need to find is 1 solution. Live this mindset and nothing will stop you from reaching your goals. When you finish the program you will appreciate the fun times but more so the difficult ones, the ones that teach you the lessons that you will carry through your career and your life.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

The summer payrolls (paintball, canoeing, etc.) and Cancun, which is probably still the best 4 days of my life. It was a Hollywood-like experience made all the more sweet by the fact that I earned every moment of it.

Last words of wisdom

HAVE FUN! Enjoy your successes and don't take your failures too seriously. Never forget the 'why' that is the reason you joined CWP. It will carry you to the finish line and beyond.
