“The Ferguson CLE Real Estate Fellowship has been transformative. As a change-maker, it provided me with a community rooted in mentorship, coaching, community, and professional development. The personal branding webinar inspired me to showcase my marketing skills on LinkedIn, opening doors to business opportunities. Confidence gained from coaching calls extends to feeling prepared for my upcoming summer internship. This fellowship has not only honed my skills but also fostered a supportive network, shaping my academic and professional journey. Grateful for this empowering experience.”
