"I attended the second session of DMJ at Fordham University last week, i've only been gone a week and i miss everyone i met like crazy! LeadAmerica was the best experience i had this summer, and it taught me so much. I now have an internship with a newstation near my house, because of the wonderful examples of my work i could show from LeadAmerica. I know where i want to apply and how i need to get there. I hope that everyone else feels the same way as i do! LeadAmerica '11 was so worth it :)" - Marisa Russell

I met tons of new friends and I have a much better idea about the field and what I want to do for a career. The staff was amazing and very helpful. Now that I'm back at home I am so much more inspired to keep looking for opportunities and putting all the new skills I learned to use!!!" - • Jessica Hickle
"When I heard about LeadAmerica I was really excited, until I saw the prices. I had no hope of going until I logged on to my page and found out that I could host a fundraising campaign. This definitely brought my hopes up. I created a fundraising webpage and an event on Facebook, and invited everyone I knew to help me achieve my goal. After three weeks of promoting, I was able to raise $1,999 dollars!! I thank my family for everything and those close friends that also helped me out." – J. Sepulveda, future alum of NLS at Stanford
