“I feel like I’ve changed by taking constructive criticism in a way that’s not so personal. I’ve learned that it’s never personal, no one is trying to hurt me. So I try to use it to my advantage. I want them to see that I can make improvements and impress them.”
“I used to not talk in front of everyone. I would get way too nervous. Now I get nervous and then I take a deep breath and…I’m just nervous a little bit but I can handle myself. I think what has made the difference is all the people that are here.”
“I would say I’ve grown the most in leadership skills. I started showing it here—I started talking to a lot of people, got really comfortable with them. After a while I started showing my skills where I work. They recently asked me to be a trainer so I guess I’m a leader there, too.”
