We are fifteen students who grew together, overcame hardships together, and most importantly, built new friendships together. These bonds will last long beyond the JA Company Program, and that is what made this a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The place Sipsy holds in our heart will never be replaced, and the effect Sipsy had on our futures will be everlasting. We entered Junior Achievement as 15 students. We will leave as one team.
