Student Testimonial

Michelle Batres UCSB class of 2014, SBI class of 2009

"Dear Anna: ...I felt in the bottom of my heart that I had to let you know that I've been doing a lot of soul searching and reading many self-help books such as The Secret, How to Make Friends and Persuade People, What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20, and Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More Than IQ. Through these books I've learned a lot about how humans think and act based on their emotions and how important it is to be aware of our own emotions in order to understand other people's actions and feelings. I finally understood your philosophy of life. Everything made sense in these last couple of months. Anna, if I had this mentality when I was enrolled in BOLT or when I was doing my BCBGMAXAZRIA internship, I would have had a more positive outcome and I would have opened endless doors of opportunities."
