To say that P2P has impacted me would be a gross understatement. Being a new scholar in the P2P cohort has absolutely changed my life. P2P has given me permission to dream again, and that changes everything. After years of believing that my future could only fit inside of a small box, P2P has taken that box and turned it into a scenic landscape. The cohort classes and sessions have ignited a drive and tenacity in me that I know is taking me places where my gifts, my voice, and my education will be put to good use. Participation in this cohort has renewed a sense of hope for my future and that I still have much to offer despite my past or mistakes. Through P2P I have been challenged and have been presented opportunities to learn and grow, and along the way I have found new family in the people I have met through this program. I am EXCITED to see what comes next!
