Student Testimonies

Juyue Chen, Yale University, Ph.D.

"3CForum course is a new start for me. I learned some really practical tools. Most importantly, I changed my mindset about storytelling and started training myself seriously. Thank you, 3CForum! You are changing young people’s lives! "

Zhichen Wang, University of Michigan, Master

"I met so many inspiring minds during the whole program. And thank you 3CForum for helping me land my first job after graduation! "

Emily Ng, Tufts University, Undergraduate

"I feel lucky to have participated in 3CForum before I started college because it gave me the tools to set myself up for career success. Through its incomparable array of speakers and teachers, I learned how to network effectively, how to speak confidently in interviews as well as hear from people who created their own success in the Silicon Valley landscape. 3CForum ultimately taught me the skills to wholly develop my interests into a viable career, and is an unmissable opportunity to take before starting college.”

James Qiu, MIT Sloan, MBA

"When I went to 3CForum, I was pleasantly surprised by how much the program helped me with my MBA application. A recurring theme in 3CForum was ‘what matters to us most’. I was pushed to confront that question after almost every lecture and every conversation I had. After so much self-reflection and self-introspection, I realized that 3CForum really guided me to a clear path after my MBA education. My growth was not just professional, but personal. Thank you, 3CForum!"
