Reflecting on three years at E@D

Three years have truly flown by. I still remember my first day sitting at an E@D meeting early in my Sophomore year. Over the past three years, I have learned many valuable lessons from the student entrepreneurs I have spoken with and the other writing I have done, and I’m happy to share them with you today. The three key lessons I have learned throughout my time writing for E@D are talk to people, ask for help, and just go for it.
