"Your program taught me a lot, from learning the importance of time management and reflecting on my own strengths and weaknesses, to giving me an inside look at the world of basketball and how to make it. Also, those tips from the CIBC employee were beneficial, and I'm sure they'll help me in the future. Last thing, one quote that you told me that really stuck to me was "opportunity through adversity," it really helped me take advantage of every circumstance that I was put through and come out with something positive."
