“I didn’t expect to have the opportunities I have had and to be as professionally ahead of the curve as I am. I feel confident in my ability to get competitive internships and think out of the box. I would never have expected to start an entrepreneurial venture and present it to Senior Vice Presidents at Samsung in my first year at college, but connecting students with outstanding opportunities is part of the Champlain experience.”
