What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

My proudest accomplishment has been starting and running my own business and making it through the first few years which are always the toughest.

CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

College Works was one of the best experiences in my life and I credit that experience for giving me the strength and confidence to run my own business.

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

My CWP had an immediate impact on my career. I started my business the following year. The year after that I graduated and went into business full time.

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

The greatest lesson I learned from CWP was to always keep the end in mind. Some days are tougher than others but achieving the end goal makes it all worth it.

Advice

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

My advice is to always keep the end goal in mind. Understand what your main reason for participating in the internship is, and keep thinking about that the entire time.

What's your best advice for someone interested in entering your career field?

Network with successful individuals in the industry.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Completing the ladder at the obstacle course with the two biggest DMs at the time.

Last words of wisdom

CWP is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn how run a business while still in school and to learn if you have what it takes to run a business of your own.
