Today on the show, I’m sharing an interview with Lisette Miranda, founder and CEO of PINC Internships which specializes in internships and immersion programs for female college students. Her model and approach to program design is deeply rooted in female empowerment, skill building, networking, and practical professional development.

Lisette’s own international education story is one that will inspire both students and professionals on how drive, determination, and gumption can help you design the life you want….and how to figure out what you want through trial and error.

This is one of my favorite conversations to date! Lisette is incredibly intelligent, driven, and is approaching her work with passion and heart. Thanks so much for coming on the show, Lisette!
