I am currently a freshman at Cornell University, majoring in Biological Sciences.
Through YES, I got a job as a cashier at the Ithaca Bakery. The YES program helped me get involved with my job by introducing me to the people I would be working with and walking me through the entire process. My participation in the program really helped me make those initial connections with the management that are so important for first impressions. Thanks to the support I received from YES, I was able to get a meaningful experience out of my job, and I continued working there until I graduated from high school.
