A message from Johanna Beemster
It was an honour to be the first to receive the generous Ellen Edwards CDP Student Award. The award will help to facilitate my goal of completing the Career Development Practitioner Certificate program by June 2008. The program is providing me with a solid foundation to develop the skills that will allow me to join the ranks of those known to be the best in this field.
Thank you.
