"I joined as a Developing Professional in 2017 and since then have also been a mentor. My own experience with Pass the Torch has opened up many pathways Into the tech and venture capital industries which I wasn’t aware of before. I have been able to learn from my mentors and other professionals in this community who had navigated these types of career progressions. Seeing their example made me realize I can do it too. Through mentoring Project Grow students and connecting with other Developing Professionals, I have been tremendously inspired by the impact we can all make by empowering more women to bet on themselves and reach their potentials."
