It’s not easy. I cannot stress how many times I wanted to quit this program. But you have to want it. You have to be willing to put in the work. CAPSA gave me the confidence to walk into an interview and take total control of the room; I am now gainfully employed and beyond grateful for the impact CAPSA has had on my life.
