Navigate has given me an incredible foundation of knowledge to build upon. It has equipped me with a practical starting point and plan to live a meaningful life.
[Navigate] helped me feel normal that I didn't know all the answers yet, and it encouraged me to pick something to do.
I have no regrets on taking this class. It has been so helpful to me in making the right decisions in this important time in my life.
