Review for PENSACOLA YOUNG PROFESSIONALS INC, Pensacola, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I moved to Pensacola in '05. For about a year, I did everything I could think of to meet new people and network. After many failed attempts I began looking for other places to live. Not long after that, someone told me about PYP. I gave it a shot and it was the best decision I ever made! It gave me the opportunity to feel a part of the community, meet new friends, and help others. I finally feel that I can make a difference in the quality of life of Pensacola just by being a part of something I believe in. I've been a part of PYP for over 4 years now and I may never leave. This organization has given me the opportunity to grow professionally and personally in ways I never imagined. At first, I was hesitant to take on new challenges in my life, but PYP gave me the positive environment I needed to challenge myself. Some of the people I have met in this organization will hopefully be a part of my life for years to come even when my time with PYP is over. Outstanding organization!!!!
