My name is Janice Lee and I am a 2015 America Needs You Fellow. As a rising junior, I am studying accounting at the Macaulay Honors Program at Baruch College, where I will be graduating in Spring 2018. Being a first-generation college student, I struggled with finding the resources and guidance necessary to help propel my career forward. After being accepted into the America Needs You Fellows Program, I was ecstatic to receive a tremendous amount of support and professional development skills from the Saturday workshops. From these workshops, I have seen myself grow into a confident person, now unafraid to network and take risks in experiences for which I once thought I was unqualified. My mentor coach at ANY has always been by my side, encouraging me to try my hardest and be open-minded about the opportunities that come my way. He spent countless hours helping me prepare for interviews and providing me with tips to secure an internship for the summer. With the help of ANY and my mentor, I am proud to be working for Accenture this summer as a Consulting Analyst Intern. I aspire to establish life-long bonds with fellow interns and employees and further improve my analytical problem-solving skills. I am so grateful for the welcoming, familial environment America Needs You provides and I am excited for my future endeavors at ANY and in my career.
