Best FLA Experience: My favorite experience in FLA was actually the case competition. Prior to the case, my mentee group and I weren't really that close, however, after working on the case and collaborating as a team we were really able to bond and come together as a group! It was so cool to see the impact that collaboration can have, and we all ended up becoming really close. An added bonus was that we won the case comp!
