Marlen's HACU Experience

I went into this conference not really knowing what it would entail because, on its face, it just seemed to be about professional development and attending some sessions. It went beyond anything I could have imagined. There is just something so powerful about being in a room with people who look like you, sound like you and have shared similar experiences. I loved that it felt as if we were at a giant family reunion rather than a conference.
At first, it was a bit intimidating seeing big corporations and tech company representatives there, but I realized that they were there to help us. There were many networking opportunities that I would not have otherwise been exposed to, so for that, I was very grateful.
One of the main things I took away from this conference is that you set your limits. The possibilities are endless, and the opportunities are out there; it’s just about going after them. Overall, it was very empowering, and I hope other Concordia students are able to attend a HACU event.
