“Anyone who’s willing to invest in themselves can succeed in this world, and taking part in a program like Summer Search is a one-way ticket to self-improvement. I feel transformed as if one better human was made in the state of Wyoming over the summer. But growth never ends. Now the tools have been given to me.”
I’ve been given opportunities that many people who come from underrepresented communities simply don’t have access to. Summer Search was a place where I could meet other students who came from a background like mine, and were graduating from college, and succeeding in the types of jobs I wanted for myself. Having those role models and mentors through Summer Search and their Alumni Network has had a great impact in my life.
Summer Search, in no light tones, has meant the absolute world to me. The sheer compassion and empathy are characteristics of Summer Search that have allowed me to flourish on my journey. Without their guidance, I am sure I would have had a very different, and much less pleasant college experience. Because of Summer Search, I have found avenues for my life that this organization has enabled me to reach. The mentors of Summer Search have changed my life in beautiful ways.
