Ignite has opened my eyes to see the potential that was residing in me without any of my knowledge. The Ignite internship has been the best thing to have happened to me, because it has shaped the person I have become today as a leader as well as mature responsible young adult.
Ignite has invested its time and resources in taking me through the journey of growing and maturing through leadership training trips, one on one mentoring and counselling sessions, it was during these sessions that I started to come out of shell, and began to see possibilities which didn’t seem possible before Ignite. I can honestly say Ignite has ignited a fire in my soul.
