The Impact Project Grow had on Jenny: “It’s helped me narrow down my vision. I’m a big-picture person, and my mentors have helped me identify how to merge my existing skills with my newfound technology skills. Project Grow has also ignited my passion for networking and getting to know other professionals. I hope to pay it forward by serving as a mentor in my community.” – Jenny
