“Wisconsin really opened my eyes up to the joy of seeing an idea in your head and taking it completely to the finish line—the importance of taking initiative, really believing in the power of community, believing in the power of hands-on experience, to make things happen. Wisconsin gave me the confidence that I had something unique to bring to the table and that I could really help change the world.”
