I don't think I would have had half the confidence in running my own business if it weren't for JA. I've applied real skills I've learned from the program- like drop shipping- into my business, and used the soft skills I've gained such as public speaking to grow my brand.
Sanjana, JA Company Program Student
I will use the information I learned today towards my future and my career. I know more about the different careers available to me now and how to access them and learn more about them.
Student, Empowering Young Women career exploration event
I was able to share my story with these young women and help them understand what the sector can offer them. It’s important they find role models that have succeeded by being themselves – and this event helped showcase women from various industries who have done just that.
