Another update on from , reporting live from Florida:

My experience at WJMC would not have been the same if I did not take chances. From applying to the program, making new friends, and applying for the internship, the key to success is approaching everything with a “why not?” attitude. No matter how big or small your goal is, WJMC is a hub for achievement and milestones that we all celebrate as a community. The first step is the hardest, but it can lead to incredible memories. 💙
