Years training local change makers
NLC helped me hammer through that whole imposter syndrome. NLC has given me the outlet that I needed professionally, which I needed for a very long time.
I’ve gained some genuine friendships and family. I love the fact we can call each other in and have honest conversations with each other and know that we give each other the benefit of the doubt. The folks that show up, they always show out, I know that when there is another NLC’er in the room, it’s always going to be a good time.
I had expectations when I signed up for NLC and what I’d get out of it. NLC blew those expectations away. We became so close. What keeps me coming back are the relationships we built during our time together.
