Dr. Lindsay Kuhn
Founder, Filmmaker, & CEO
"One day you will get a Ph.D. in a field your parents have never heard of. It will teach you how to think, how to persevere, and how to believe in yourself when others don't."
CTO & Lead Engineer
"Don't brush off a career in technology just because math isn't your favorite subject. Engineering can be just as much about creative expression as it is about numbers and logic."
Kathrina St. Flavin
Lead Curriculum Designer
Do not be afraid to bet on yourself. When you take action based on self-belief, you achieve more than you could ever imagine.
"Follow your curiosity, even if it takes you off the beaten path."
"It’s okay to not have everything figured out. Trust yourself!"
"Everything will pay off, don’t stress so much."
"Having a plan for yourself and what you want to accomplish is great, but learning to adapt when faced with change is just as important."
"Don’t feel like you have to study something grand to make an impact. There are many paths to changing the world. Follow the one you love."
"Read more. Travel more. Befriend more people."
Dr. Ingrid Prioleau Byrd
Advisor and Researcher
"Have faith in yourself especially when others don’t see the possibilities of your ideas and dreams."
"Be more open to diverse possibilities and to take more risks! Don’t worry about getting somewhere according to a certain plan—you don’t have to get from point A to point B in a linear fashion. And sometimes the bumpy or winding road might take more time, but also be more exciting!"
Advisor and CTO/Founder of Boomerang.com
Advisor and Founder/CEO of Exceptional People

Advisor and Co-Founder of Launch Academy
"Have more fun! Be open to new and unique experiences."
Advisor and Managing Director, Customer Success at Force Management

And you may even surprise yourself!"
Advisor and Consultant at CWE, Mass Challenge, and Empower Success Corps
"As I reflect on my younger days the things I regret most are missed opportunities to help others like classmates being bullied or ignored, fellow students struggling with coursework, or strangers in distress. So if I could give a young version of myself some advice I would say “Be aware of the plight of fellow travelers and commit at least one random act of kindness each day.” I now realize that paying it forward is the best mantra to live by."
