Here’s What West Gold Fellows Alums Have To Say!

I learned a lot of new things I didn’t know before…I never thought about business, I never thought about what I wanted to do for my career. And after meeting so many different entrepreneurs and people who owned their own business, I now want to become an entrepreneur.
Chyra Vincent
I felt like I was investing in my future. Instead of just having fun now, I work now so I can have more fun later… What impacted me the most, is that it made me more confident in what I want to do.

I thought it was just going to be a summer job, you know mess around, make some money. But eight weeks later, it is something that was valuable and it helped me realize what I want to do in life, how I’m going to get there, and what I’m going to do when I get there.
Tom Mechichi
Over the course of eight weeks you might not think a lot can happen, but a lot did happen, so I’m a survivor and a believer. Especially if you push yourself and you have the support behind you to keep pushing with you.
