"The Lime Connect Fellowship has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences that I have participated in. The fact that every one of us happens to have a disability was not something to be ashamed of or looked down on. It was something to be embraced and proud of because of the unique perspective that each of us had. This was a complete mind-shift from how I previously viewed my disability. Without a doubt, Lime Connect was a critical jumpstart to my professional career." - Jim SanMarco, Lime Fellows Class of 2011, previously with Bloomberg/currently Enterprise Client Solutions Manager with Microsoft company LinkedIn.

*A person with a disability is defined as someone who has, or considers themselves to have, a long-term or recurring issue that impacts one or more activities that others may consider to be a daily function. This definition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists. We know that 90% of disabilities on campus are invisible, and candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to apply.
