In Wesley ’s Words
Why did you join YouthForce? What did you hope to gain from the experience?
I joined the TeamWork program to experience a part of the American culture. I also hoped to gain better communication skills so that I may talk to anyone freely without being nervous. Which by the way has been achieved thanks to YouthForce.
When you talk about YouthForce to your friends what do you say?
The best workplace for us teens and highly recommend them to apply if they want to work with cool, understanding and helpful superiors.
What drives you to attend YouthForce University Events, and what did you expect to learn?
Each event is unique and different from each other. For the Etiquette Dinner we learned how to present ourselves while eating and what to do and not to do. At the Capgemni (the first) Interview session we learned most of our mistakes when we do an interview. By the second interview session with Acumatica we polished our interview skills to the fullest. KeyBank taught us how we can save money, best way to invest etc. Dream project helped us with our college applications and even answered some of our questions about the University of Washington. And that's only a portion of what we learned from the events.
What skills have you gained from YouthForce University Events? How have you used those skills so far? How do you plan to use them in your future?
Interview skills and etiquette skills. I am using my interviewing skills for college interviews and give the interviewee a lasting impression about me and hopefully recommend me strongly to the college institution. In the future I will use my interview skills to get my dream job (working for NASA) and using etiquette skills at formal parties such as having dinner with your boss or even with a government official.
What has been your most impactful or favorite YouthForce University memory?
The Acumatica Interview Session since I was able to win a prize thanks to my interviewing skills.
