Thoughts about CSTEP: There is so much to say about CSTEP, because it’s a program that has done so much for me and the students at QCC. One of the best decisions that I made at Queensborough was to join CSTEP which has helped me in a lot of different ways for instance organizing my resume, Internships opportunities, networking, and most of all its like being in a family where everyone is there to help others to achieve something in life and much more.
