Student Testimonials from
Meaning makers boot camp

My confidence has gone from about, 10 to 100, and the reason why is because I was really able to explore my passion, put myself in a space where I was uncomfortable, and watched myself achieve. There is no way to figure out what you're going to do, if you don't actually do it.


I would definitely recommend this program to a lot of students if they have a problem finding their voice or finding the meaning of what they want to do after they graduate from college, or if they're just getting right out of high school and they're, like, I wanna be an entrepreneur.


I would definitely recommend this program to other students that are interested in entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, or just trying to get their ideas to become something. I feel like this program will empower students to be able to get out of that comfort zone, and be able to take a risk; and just try to follow those dreams and passions.


I would definitely recommend this experience to other students, because, from my experience, seeing where I've grown as an entrepreneur, I just want that for everybody, and I know that GCSEN can instill that into everybody. Even if you're just slightly interested in business, and you just wanna learn more about it, GCSEN is the perfect opportunity for you to do that.
