Staff Testimonials:
This session was an interactive way to approach career planning with our students.  The students we counsel sometimes have difficulty expressing their dreams out loud for fear of the reaction they’ll receive.  This film and the workshop created an atmosphere of trust and openness that encouraged students to articulate their dreams and how they want to live their lives.  I highly recommend this session to other universities looking for a creative and interactive way to help students identify, express and pursue their dreams! Trish Shafer, Director, Career Services Center, Philadelphia University

We just had Chip and Alexis here at Salisbury University to introduce their video and lead a Q& A session afterwards.  We had over 60 students attend-and they were very into the hour long video.  Everyone hung around for 45 minutes after the airing to talk.  Chip and Alexis were able to answer all the questions in a full and insightful manner.  They were good at getting people to open up.  Earlier that day they had conducted a class that had a more structured workshop approach after the video.  Here the students also were engaged and thoughtful-due in large part to their facilitation skills as well as the thought provoking nature of the video.  Students can really relate to Chip and Alexis-they look like them, have many of the same experiences as them yet have something very important to offer.  It was a good experience for all!Dr. Becky Emery, Director of Career Services, Salisbury University

This was a wonderful program or students of all ages, as well as professionals.  The workshop after the documentary is extremely fun , helpful and allowed a great opportunity to reflect and dream.  Bring them to your school or workplace! –  Angela Jackson, Longwood University

Student Testimonials:

I seriously think, if I could see into the future, I would see that going to this screening set those wheels in motion toward me having an ultimately happier and more fulfilled life. I think everyone who is in college should see this film. I think that they should see this in high schools too. I think that everyone needs to see this because it gives them the chance to say wait a minute, I don’t wanna do this, I really want to do that! Before it’s too late to turn around. Especially in college and high school when you are trying to figure out what you want to do and what you want to study, and you are making those decisions, and having those doubts! That is exactly when you should be thinking about this stuff. – Cathleen Fuller, Salisbury University

I just wanted to thank you guys so much for the inspiration. I have so much respect for what you did.

The documentary was very inspiring. It drew a lot of good questions that one never really stops to think about.

It (the film) makes me want to do things I believe in. Things I envision myself doing that will make me happy.I want to make a difference in this world. I want to impact other people’s lives in some way. – Philadelphia University student

I thought the documentary was great, it was interesting to see how two people took their dream and went somewhere with it, getting advice from others on the way.  I was especially inspired by the experience because the professionals in the video said to pursue your dream now, when you’re young and have your whole life ahead of you, don’t wait. – Philadelphia University student

This experience has helped me a lot. It reassured me that I am on the right career path and that I should be taking risks and trying to pursue my dream regardless if that choice will cause me financial success. – Philadelphia University student
