The Alumni Experience

Coming to [alumni] events is really important, not only for reaching out and meeting other people, but also for personal growth and self-reflection as well…I’ve been really enjoying just this whole networking experience and being a part of this community.

The Alumni Experience

“Without the opportunities presented by ISEF, I certainly would not be here today. I can’t wait to see what my fellow ISEFers will be able to do in the future. With all of us sharing the common goal of solving humanity’s problems and changing Earth for the better, I am extremely confident that we will all grow up to do great things.”
