I wasn’t sure what to expect from CMBU, but what I got was incredible. The amount of talent and wealth of resources I came away with this weekend will give me a boost into my career, and the people I met have poured into me immensely.
There were so many resources and tools given on how to succeed in radio and I have never been so uplifted and felt more certain of what I am called to do. I feel blessed beyond words to participate in this opportunity to combine my faith and my talents to honor God and inspire others.
