"The one immediate thing Endeavor gave me was confidence. It didn’t feel like I belonged to this traditional path that many students at BC so vehemently seem to pursue. After Endeavor, I realized that was OK. I would make my own path, meet the right people, and find my way– the Nat way. Everyone has their own unique success story. I will too! I ended up getting an incredible internship in NYC that summer thanks to my newfound confidence."
