During the summer of 2012, Agosto hosted six STEP-UP Achieve Minneapolis interns, and recently one of them submitted an essay about her experiences. Hafsa’s essay was the grand prize runner up from all those who submitted essays; Agosto is proud of her efforts and of all of our interns.

Last year, Agosto approached STEP-UP with the idea of providing interns a unique learning and work experience in the IT sector. By giving young people a chance to gain perspective and confidence by participating in hands-on project work, Agosto believes that they will have a greater chance for placement and success in future employment. Helping to build a knowledgeable, confident, skilled and diverse future IT workforce can only help the IT sector as a whole, as well as the interns and Agosto.
