I'm not sure what I want to do when I grow up but I do know that CC has already helped me achieve many of my goals so far. They've given me opportunities to be involved as much as I can (which is something I've always wanted to do). They've also given me a great education and experience that I won't ever forget. If I don't know what I want to do before I leave, I know that they'll give me the tools to figure it out later!
