“If there is one thing I took with me from the program, is that I was better prepared for the working professional world than anyone else my age. I’m in my second successful career now as the Director Influencer Strategy at Microsoft, but I can still give a proper nod to my time with SkillsUSA. I’m more confident, able and comfortable with the individual I am today, and that started with SkillsUSA.”
