”What an incredible experience I had at Lattitude this past summer. It was such a wonderful opportunity for me and I loved working with all of you. I felt so welcomed and it was lovely to be a part of the team! I also want to thank you for how much you all taught me ... I am so grateful for all of your mentorship and knowledge. Because of everything I was able to learn and experience with Lattitude, I have a new set of skills, experience and self-motivation to follow the career path that I love. … I am currently doing humanitarian work in India. I am working with multiple NGOs, providing them with my new knowledge and skills … I wouldn't be here without Lattitude's help. I have also been accepted at Simon Fraser for the spring term in January.”
