"From studying balance sheets and analyzing investor decks, to creating and presenting one of my own, ENTITY’s Business Collective hard skill curriculum helped me hone my technical finance abilities. The soft skill training not only empowered me to be a fearless leader, but also helped me become an intentional team player. I can confidently say that ENTITY created a space for me to speak up, learn from my mistakes, and build connections in a forgiving and relaxed environment. I feel so grateful to now be a part of the network that built me up to succeed in financial services.”

VIRTUAL ACADEMY TESTIMONIALS
I really enjoyed Virtual Academy... it was like an online college experience – I got a lot of different classes I hadn't taken in college. I definitely utilized that and took a lot of notes in the program. I learned how to structure an article. And going through the SEO training and how to put it into action, that was pretty interesting to me.
JANEE / VIRTUAL ACADEMY 2019
As I was doing the program, I was working on a case for a scholarship. So basically, I used the skills I learned to apply for the scholarship ... I was a semi-final for the scholarship, and we had to develop a five-year growth plan for the new gap menswear athleisure brand.

I think the headline training was helpful; it helped me get into my creativity with my writing. It made my research less boring. Also, the brand building and deciding on fonts and building a mood board was helpful. And then there was one lecturer who taught us the “Positive 5 game” to talk about perseverance and perspective. That was helpful for helping me focus and push forward.

I will definitely use the skills to keep learning. I watched a lot of the speaker series and most of them were saying to ‘work hard’ and that nothing is ever handed to you. In this day and age, we have this instant gratification thing going on. I know I had it. But I learned that you have to really put in your time. That made me feel better knowing that people who made it are going through some things.

I noticed improvement in my daughter’s overall personal presentation and professionalism. Working under tight deadlines and delivering quality work product was great real-world experience. In the bigger picture, I believe the ENTITY Mentorship Program was instrumental in building her self-confidence as a #womanthatdoes. The ENTITY Fellowship is an exceptional opportunity for young women to get a concentrated work experience as well as access to top mentors that will not only prepare them for their professional careers but also adult life. And for that, I am grateful that my daughter was able to participate.

My daughter’s confidence grew tremendously this summer. She walked in nervous of what the summer would hold, but came out of the mentorship program as a #womanthatdoes. She learned new skills, met new people and was mentored by an incredible group of people who want her to succeed.

ENTITY not only provided Elena the opportunity to exercise and hone the skills she’s gained in media and communication through her schooling, but it gave her a relevant platform to benefit her as she moves forward. ENTITY has helped Elena grow professionally, culturally, and creatively.
