SUMMER ON THE CUYAHOGA
February 16, 2011
SOTC is a wonderful program and has truly impacted my life. Through my participation, I had the opportunity to discover my career goals, meet and become friends with bright students from across the country, and learn more about my home town. Because of SOTC, I received an internship with a company I built a strong relationship with and grew to love. I learned the type of work I truly enjoy and returned to this company the following summer.The organization also sponsored various networking events where I had the chance to not only meet new people, but also learn about the various opportunities available to me. One information session we had with a consulting firm particularly sparked my interest, and in turn I looked more into this field. As a recent college graduate, I am now working as a consultant. Additionally, the program sponsored events for the students to explore Cleveland and to gain appreciation for the city. Although I've lived here all my life, I definitely learned a lot more about what my city has to offer. Overall, the organization has had a large influence on me, that I'm sure the leadership never expected, and it deserves to be recognized for its many successes.
