I am currently a student at Year Up Puget Sound and am about to start my internship at Google in one week. I graduated high school a year ago and I didn’t know what to do with myself. Year Up has given me the skills and confidence so that I can be successful. The people that helped me the most were my program manager, Brian Kenny, and advisor Dannielle Stewart.
If you’re about to start your year at Year Up you have to be dedicated and focused. Whenever you feel tired, frustrated, or like you want to quit, just think about where you can be in a year and what an amazing opportunity this is. Come with an open mind and a good attitude and you will do great.
