"B.E.N. helped me prepare for this role in so many ways. It first gave me the courage and insight to ask for more responsibility and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone. Because of B.E.N.,  I can work on special projects such as the Career Catch Networking  Event, Legendary 17 Doug Williams Initiative, and establishing a pipeline with local HBCUs and more!"
