“Graciela blew our students out of the water! Her workshop was very valuable and she engaged everyone individually. This allowed each participant to truly become involved, ask many questions and learn from her. Graciela’s techniques of engaging students was very effective and fun. Students left with a clear understanding about how to market themselves in order to go out into the workforce, start a business or apply to graduate schools.” Daliana Rivera, Student Veteran Program, Towson University

“Graciela showed us that our skills learned in the military can be repackaged to help showcase our talents. She showed us how to broadcast our skills to others by networking and branding ourselves. Most importantly, she gave us the confidence and knowledge to broadcast our talents to form our own brand.”  Chris Powell, Veteran, Towson University Student

“Graciela is extremely personable and possesses a wealth of knowledge. I wish there were more veterans like her with the skills of public speaking to reach out as she does.” Kevin Morgan, Veteran, Towson University Student
