“B:E has contributed to my life in various aspects both educationally and having/providing a stable living place so it is one thing I don’t have to worry about. The direction of my career excites me about my future. It’s a great feeling knowing that I have gotten a support system to help me make decisions & further think of what I can become. The unknown possibilities excite me.”
