I met Emily several years ago at a conference and was immediately drawn to her engaging and energetic style. We invited her to SJC Brooklyn as the keynote for our student leadership event in spring 2020 and were then turned upside down by the COVID-19 Crisis. Emily quickly and happily agreed to present virtually and provided career tips and actionable steps that inspired students. Thank you, Emily, for your encouraging, thoughtful, and motivational talk. I hope to welcome you to our beautiful SJC Brooklyn campus in the near future.
