“The Bayar Fellowship was an abundant source of information that helped me fine-tune my networking skills, internship-landing skills, and more. I am now equipped with the knowledge I need to become an even stronger applicant! For example, Esat showed all of us how to write an amazing cover letter.”

“This program is truly unique and special for young adults from low-income backgrounds. I would have never been able to learn about networking or professionalism this early without this fellowship. I was able to meet professionals and gain so much insight, not only from people like Esat but also from the other fellows. It was a beautiful and welcoming community that I would recommend anyone join.”

“The Bayar Fellowship has truly been an amazing experience. As a low-income high school student, I found the program tailored to my interests in a way that made me feel seen and valued. East Bayar, the founder, has been an incredible mentor, selflessly guiding me through college and recruitment processes. The fellowship’s emphasis on financial literacy has provided me with a solid foundation for my future. Moreover, the connections I’ve formed with fellow participants and mentors have created a strong support system that will continue to propel me towards success.”
