Kyshira Moffett Inspired to Pursue Her Dreams

As a leader on my campus, I have had the opportunity to work with the BEEP Program in 2012 and in 2013 at Hampton University. Interacting with several BEEPers has inspired and influenced me to become active with the National Urban League upon graduation. I have gained new wisdom and insight through the BEEP program. Students who attend the BEEP Program gain a priceless learning experience by interacting with top corporate executives who look like them. By exposing students to top minority leaders in business, it inspires them to continue to pursue academic excellence and gives them hope that they can achieve their dreams.

This 18-month fellowship included a career coach who had industry experience, four seminars hosted by top firms, career fairs, and workshops that ranged from resume writing to interview preparation.

I interned with PNC last summer in the retail banking department, and while there, I began to network with top executives in human resources. I then applied for a full-time HR position and was fortunate enough to receive an offer.
