Testimonials from Past Participants


    I gained valuable insight through the WIL MY program. I have learnt that staying in my comfort zone is the easier and safer option but may not be best for me.  A key takeaway from my relationship with my mentor is the importance to push the boundaries beyond my comfort zone. Our conversations were thought provoking and challenging, empowering me with the confidence to move forward.
