A big part of my success can be attributed to my experience at BSS, in class and outside. I am very pleased and proud to be in a position to inspire other young women to set and achieve their goals.
Laryssa is a big believer in the power of collaboration, learning from failure, and making room for divergent voices in our work and our lives.
