“This is a good idea because many students pick career paths because of peer pressure and not really because they are passionate about a specific profession. Having a seminar like this is great because they get to hear real success stories from real professionals that will open up their minds to make more informed career decisions.” — Deborah C., Deputy Program Manager of Job Placements, Excel Beyond.
“The most important thing is that you fear God above everything else. That is the most important thing in life, even about a career. Make sure that patience, perseverance and prayer define your lives.” —Chikondi Phiri, Country Director
“I am very grateful because I now have a better understanding of the wisest way to pursue the career I want in medicine. This was informative for me and I will not forget the good advice to always be in prayer and to persevere through the hard and uncertain times.” — Misheck N., Foundation Year Student
