“More than anything else New Roots taught me that to really get ahead one has to be self driven! So much of the work… especially in senior year is all based upon how one can be self-motivated to go the extra mile. In college, it’s been easy to slip into a passive role but my New Roots experience has helped me to fight troughs and eventually going that extra mile.”

“New Roots has helped me towards ultimately getting to where I want to be in a few different ways: first, New Roots taught me to be comfortable in my own self, and with who I am. Second, I am well prepared to adjust to the hard work and independence involved in being a college student.”
