"During my time in school, I deeply enjoyed education, but I was unsure how to take my experience and apply it to a real-world job. Once I graduated from SV Academy in June 2018, I felt primed to take on my new role because I was supported through any moments of self-doubt and uncertainty that accompany any young graduate entering the workforce. They've been with me as I experienced two internal promotions in just a year, and I know SV Academy will stay with me as more opportunities come my way."
