“Overall, despite it being on a virtual platform, I had a great experience! It was amazing to hear from professionals in the field, and the sessions on college essays, financial aid, and creating a LinkedIn were all really useful. I know it’s difficult to organize given the changing COVID situation, but the field trip to Northeastern was definitely a highlight! – YSP Participant 2021
