“My GCSP’s project focus was making non-conventional sources of energy economical such as energy derived from biomass or agricultural waste. Through the GCSP journey, I received a multifaceted experience, where I was able to publish a research paper in a journal, secure seed capital for my team’s business venture, and obtain an internship in a state-of-the-art ethanol facility. The GCSP experience was useful to me in two important ways; it aided me in developing strong skillset for networking and public speaking. In addition, GCSP instilled in me an entrepreneurial mindset that I largely credit it for my success in stepping into the ethanol industry. Nevertheless, GCSP is an asset, a merit, just like one’s degree that will serve as a stepping stone to bolster personal confidence, professional life, and wellbeing of others and yourself.”
