“The Executive Mentor Program bestowed upon me an extraordinary, beneficial opportunity. The invaluable knowledge and assistance contributed by my mentor, Ms. Molly Murphy, surpassed beyond my expectations. Our time spent during our meetings has been an unparalleled experience. No words of gratitude can fully justify the irreplaceable hours dedicated by my mentor. My meetings with Ms. Murphy has simultaneously broadened my horizons and affirm my professional pursuit in the accounting industry. She helped strengthen my self-growth and professional development skills. Through our interactions, I was able to distinguish my core values, and strive for a balance in all aspects of life, whether it be professional, academics, or personal. This phenomenal experience empowered me to maintain my ambitious and persevering characteristics, and substantiated my career goals."
