"Boom Box has been an incredible source of support for me during a period when I felt incapable of making progress. Meeting Gee Kin at precisely the right moment felt like a divine intervention. I am genuinely grateful for his invaluable assistance in connecting me with experienced professionals and serving as a mentor throughout my interactions with various speakers. His guidance has empowered me to ask questions and take control of meetings, even when I initially lacked the confidence to do so. As a student, reaching out to people can be daunting, but Gee Kin not only arranged meetings with professionals but also helped me improve my interpersonal skills and expand my network on a global scale. I extend my heartfelt thanks to Gee Kin for his unwavering support. If you have any inquiries or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me."

Megan, Richmond, CA
"I've been in this program for two years now, and I am so grateful that this program can connect me with people currently in the career fields I am interested in, all at a low cost (it's free, how awesome is that). I was able to connect with not one but two of my interested professions (a Plastic Surgeon & a Neuropsychologist). Gee Kin has been incredibly helpful in sending me a list of potential questions I could ask and was present during interviews, which made the process a whole lot easier. I think if it weren't for Boombox, it would have taken me lifetimes to find these people, let alone get meetings with them because they live such busy lives. I'm honored to be in this program, and the networks I've gotten from this couldn't have come at a better time. Thank You, Gee Kin Chou!"

"Boombox has been a great experience for me. I have been a part of Boombox for some time now and all the people that I was able to interview gave me a new look into my career choice. When Covid-19 started, Gee Kin was still able to pair me up with professionals in the field that I was interested in. This of course was through zoom but I was still able to learn and ask so many questions from all the different people in different career fields. Even though I am in college already, Boombox is still helping me look into different careers that I find interesting."

"Boombox is amazing. At first I wasn’t sure about what career I wanted. I chose software engineering but we can all say we want to peruse a career but we don’t keep in mind the lifestyle, environment, or requirements of the field. That’s where Boombox really helped me. They got me interviews with software engineers and people closely related to software engineering. I got to interview these amazing people and got an insight into their lifestyle and work. And let me say Boombox has helped me narrow down my options of careers that fit my lifestyle and interest. And I am still going to be interviewing people thanks to Boombox, to keep exploring different fields to help me make sure I choose a career that I will be happy about for the next 50 years. I want to wake up every day for the rest of my life and be happy with the career I chose. Boombox is amazing it’s free and it’s honestly a life changer as we don’t always get an opportunity to interview software engineers but Boombox makes it possible."
Virginia, Oakland, CA

Gee Kin is such a great organizer. He sets you up with the best mentors that fits what you’re looking for. Not only do you meet amazing mentors, but you can also build strong relationships with them and this can possibly help you with your future career. If it wasn’t for Boombox I wouldn’t have met so many great people and be surrounded by mentors who actually care about sharing valuable information."
