At the beginning of her program, Alison said she was nervous giving presentations in front of class. But through the encouragement of those around her, she's gained greater confidence in herself and her leadership abilities. Her new presentation skills have been essential as the director of a Christian organization.
"Before, I didn't have very much confidence," she said. "But being here at Cornerstone, I really just took the presentations in stride. So that was a very big thing for me. Now in my work, I have to do a meeting once a month, in front of all my partners. These days, it's part of the job, and I just do it. To have that confidence is huge for me."
