FF gave me the confidence and belief that I was capable of leading and managing a company myself right now.
Limitless learning opportunities, a people-focused culture and its global presence motivated me to stay with my sponsor company Abbott after FF.
I was catapulted into a network of like-minded people, and opened to an environment rich in opportunities.
Personally- The people I have had the opportunity to meet and the friendships that I’ve formed.
