“The Alum Conference was just what I needed, which was to pull away from my regular home life and force me to refocus on where I'm at with my material, departing with a game plan to keep moving forward. I got some much needed feeedback on pages I hadn't looked at in a while and was excited to get fresh eyes and ultimately lots of wonderful encouragement to keep going!! As an alum, I'm so grateful for the resources that remain available to me and proud to be a member of this ever-expanding inspirational family."
