"There is no passion to be found in playing small — in settling for a life that is less than you are capable of living.” — Nelson Mandela

Hear what attendees of the recent summit are saying...

The key takeaway for me was to start from where you are; there is no perfect time. Also, to align with people who are already successful and be humble enough to ask for help and direction. I mostly enjoyed the genuineness and authenticity of the panelists. They were truly amazing. The best set of panelists I have experienced in a long time. They were not trying to prove anything, just sharing from the heart.

Congratulations on putting together an amazing summit. The speakers were phenomenal. My key takeaway was branding and storytelling. The speakers made their presentation relatable and spoke from the heart and were willing to assist the newbies to break into the industry. I believe that all things are possible and the only thing that can stop me from achieving my goals is me. Nothing just happens and it only work if you work it. Thanks Belinda.

My mother once told me that to be cautious of what I say because you never know who's watching. I teach high school seniors Computer Science and, today, instead of learning about for loops. We decided to watch the summit and they were amazed and happy to see people that looked like them in important and high positions. Thank you! Some of the takeaways they received were the importance of storytelling, humbling yourself, working hard, and putting yourself out there. This event gave them the inspiration to push further thus helping them overcome many of the obstacles they or society set for them.
