The DREAM Workshop has inspired me to make connections with people outside of my own social group. It has encouraged me to explore and take pride in who I am and the qualities that God gifted me. It has helped me to reflect on my experiences and has motivated me to step outside of my comfort zone in a variety of ways.
The DREAM Workshop has been incredibly beneficial. I have learned to believe in myself and my dreams. I have also learned many different techniques to network and connect with others. I thank you MJ for stepping out on faith and blessing me with all of this new and useful knowledge and confidence!
INSPIRE is what your speaking does. You fill people with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. You are gifted to stimulate, motivate, encourage, influence, move, stir, energize, excite, and spark the fire within a person.
This class really places some things into perspective. It made me think about things more intentionally- things I never really thought about before. In many ways, the D.R.E.A.M workshop, teaches you how to dream again.
I have enjoyed the past couple of months working with this group of phenomenal young women. During this time, I was able to learn more about them and myself. The DREAM workshop has given me a new outlook on my goals and my purpose, and I feel that I have gained the knowledge and tools that I need to continue manifesting my dreams. I know that my dreams are valid and whether I fail or succeed in achieving them is up to me.
The word that comes to mind when I think of my D.R.E.A.M experience is blessing. God is so divine and the first day that I went to class I knew that I was supposed to be there. I feel like I went on a journey with other beautiful young women and found something that I did not know I was missing. I received a new outlook on my future and truly begin to dream again. I realize everything that we do starts with a thought and having a thought makes it easier to put it into action. Not only that, D.R.E.A.M helped me on a professional level, to be prepared so I do not have to get prepared. I received wisdom that I will cherish for a lifetime. Again, I am so thankful for this opportunity and I know that any young woman would leave this class ready to take on the world, their world, one step at a time.
I gained the opportunity to meet Mac-Jane at a time in my life when I needed the unity of women in my company. I am grateful to have been invited into this workshop by my mentor, Alicia Barnes, and Mac-Jane. I appreciate how Mac-Jane took the initiative to create a workshop in a college town where young women can fall off to the wrong path. Mac-Jane is a vessel, and she motivates me to be a warm, welcoming woman of God. This world is tough, and you have to cherish those that care enough about you to spend time praying for you. Mac-Jane has helped me to become more confident, and take my space in the world. Thank you so much Mac-Jane!!
I truly appreciated the opportunity to speak to the ladies enrolled in the D.R.E.A.M Workshop Mentoring Program. It is truly important to be poured into as we as women pour into others, so I applaud Mac-Jane for her leadership of this group. The participants all had career paths that varied in different fields and I found it interesting to hear where they were coming from and journeying to. I hope I shed some light on job searching best practices along with some basic refreshers on networking and communicating with employers. It is always my pleasure to share with others and this was a wonderful group to participate with.
The DREAM workshop was absolutely amazing. I have definitely enjoyed the last 8 weeks with these beautiful ladies. I’ve gained so much wisdom and knowledge that will definitely help me with my future endeavors. I’m so thankful for MJ for stepping out on faith and bringing us all together.
