I learned different ways to manage my money and how I can save or use it that will help me in the future. I learned dining etiquette the mentors there always made sure everyone was involved I appreciated that because without them doing that I would’ve just been around watching.
During my time participating in Aspire Detroit I was exposed to many different tools and skills that I will continue to use. Aspire itself opened my mind to many things I would have never considered before participating.
Before the Aspire Program I had a problem with self reflection. I thought that I was a pretty smart person when it came to building relationships with people for business reasons or just in general. The Aspire program taught me that I have a lot more to learn when it comes to business and personal growth.
My take on the program was an extension of the life after high school. It taught us how to do things that the school wasn’t.
I think this program was an underrated blessing to me. Not only was I taught the necessary procedures and skills needed to enter the business world, but I also learned skills that could be useful in the pursuit of my degree and the professional situations that I will encounter in my life in the future. Overall this program has been great and I'd recommend it to about anyone who wants to better themselves.
