"Before the program, I didn't think I deserved to be there and now I realise I did deserve to be there.

I have become 100 times more self-assured and confident in my own abilities."

"Being around 27 other intelligent girls who shared my interest in STEM and the very supportive GirlBoss staff created such an empowering, welcoming, and inclusive environment. 

I really noticed a change in my attitude towards public speaking and self branding after graduating from this once in a lifetime experience. I graduated from this programme feeling empowered and confident in myself to reach my goal in becoming a future Civil Engineer.

I felt blessed to have met the GirlBoss team and the other incredible girls in the programme.

I have made life long friends. "
