“As a first generation American, first generation college graduate, a Black woman, and single mom from the hood in Brooklyn, I’m not supposed to be here- at least that’s what society says, but here I am, as one of the FIRST fellows in this inaugural [Color by Design] class.”
“[KP Launch] has provided me with every experience I could ever dream of. I've found mentors, role models, and people I consider family based on the love and support they've given me. I've found my passion and the confidence I need to successfully say that I can and I will become a physician.”
“My biggest takeaway from my experience at KP Launch and with RepresentEd is that discomfort is not always a negative thing, especially when you’re learning something new. With warm replies and constructive feedback, I was taught a variety of different and useful skills that helped me for my internship and will continue to help me going forward.”
“I feel my time with RepresentEd not only inspired me to broaden my job prospects, but helped me build a critical foundation of professional identity and authenticity. This has really increased my confidence as a professional.”
“Through RepresentEd, I was given the opportunity to put theory into practice, strengthen my problem solving ability and present ideas to other professionals. RepresentEd taught me that my life circumstances are not a valid reason for me have less access to professional opportunities.”
