Impact of Endeavor

Past participants tell stories of how Endeavor helped them connect their skills, interests, and values to meaningful career opportunities. 

A Shift in Mindset

Alycia Carroll '19

Economics major Alycia Carroll found herself confused and conflicted. She liked her classes, was doing well in them, but they didn’t bring her joy. The social justice work she experienced in her Pulse class did. At Endeavor, Alycia met an alumna working for a big company making positive social change, proving to Alycia you could do both.

When One Door Closes

Brian Kusior '19

As the son of two doctors, Brian Kusior assumed he would naturally follow in his parents’ footsteps. After receiving his first C in chemistry, a class he excelled at in high school, feelings of self-doubt began to emerge. Was the pre-med track right for him? Endeavor began a journey of self discovery that would lead him to new and unexpected choices.

Listen to Yourself

Elena Akins '19

Communication major Elena Akins felt overwhelmed by the number of career options available to her. She knew she wanted a job that would have a direct and meaningful impact on people, but what career path would lead her there. A simple piece of advice she received at Endeavor helped narrow the field and introduced an unexpected career choice.
