“It was so great hearing you speak for VISANOW about why character counts. Your message was outstanding (and very needed) and you did an excellent job of including your personal anecdotes to further convey your message. I have been at VISANOW since May 2014 and have attended countless seminars. Yours was the best, by far. Thank you! Keep up the great work you are doing in the community, with our youth. We need more leaders like you.” -VISANOW Global Immigration
