Testimonials

“After attending the Level Up conference, I learned how significant it is to learn how to network. There are many opportunities out there for students and all it takes is one conversation to make a difference. My favorite part of the Level Up conference was seeing other alumni and hearing all about their great accomplishments and successful outcomes."

"What I enjoyed the most about the Level Up conference was the bridge that was created between the audience and the professional presenters. Often when being a low-income first-generation college student there is a lack of guidance towards our professional field of interest. In the Level Up conference, I was able to connect with a Finacial advisor who willingly informed and helped me understand wealth management. With time, we stayed connected and developed a friendship that has shaped me in many ways. She introduces me to other professional individuals that become my mentors. The Level Up conference is a space where professionals volunteer to genuinely make an impact on someone's life. I believe the Level Up conference actually allowed me to Level Up my professional development."
