“It’s a life changing experience, it will be with you for the rest of your life. And it was certainly one of the best things that I’ve ever done.”

TRIUM Alumni Jenna Pilat (C2019) and Gabriel Eshaghian (C2018) joined prospective TRIUMers in July for a webinar Q&A session. The session was an opportunity to hear directly from our alumni about their own individual TRIUM experiences and their main takeaways from the program as well as their advice for future TRIUMers.
