“The I Accelerator was a game-changer that showed me that an abundance of opportunities were at my feet; it inspired me to raise my game and aspire to be the ‘best that I can be”

“Overall my experience at the I Accelerator was great. It taught me how to work in teams, be confident, always aim high and not let race or gender stop me from reaching my end goal. This experience definitely encouraged me to pursue a career in civil engineering.”
