This is a stepping stone to greater heights for you. We are proud of you because you represented FUTA well. I implore you to leverage on what you have gained and launch successfully into any future business or academic enterprise you set your heart to. I am particularly impressed that majority of you are female students. Do not let your gender limit you or keep you from becoming all you want to be”
