“The Find & Follow Your Passion conference was everything I hoped it would be. Each of the inspiring speakers were really open to sharing their stories, giving the attendees insight as to how they got to where they are today. The conference was also an excellent networking opportunity – I was able to speak to professionals from some really awesome NYC companies, as well as other recent grads.”

“Find & Follow Your Passions 2012 at SVA was such an awesome experience! It was a collection of creative, interesting people with different backgrounds and interests, but with one common denominator: Passion. It was great to listen to the speakers, engage in dialogue with other fellow Passion pursuers and hang out at the School of Visual Arts (great location!). The energy was so infectious, I was still buzzing off of it for weeks! Looking forward to checking out what Find & Follow Your Passions 2013 has to offer!”
