I have worked with Bianca for a second time now, and I know this will not be the last. In our most recent interaction, Bianca delivered a couple of workshops for undergraduates. Her professionalism, energy and creativity that she brings to the table is exactly what I admire about her. She listens to the client ask and then feeds into that with relevant and valuable inputs - what more do you want! Her delivery of the skills workshops are always energetic, refreshing and leave you self-reflecting on how to better yourself as an individual. Thank you, Bianca!
