LeeYen, Happy Bunch

"There is definitely no boundary to learning. You can find things that are similar, but the things that you learn at the e@Stanford program will definitely broaden your mind and see the world in a much different perspective. The e@Stanford program has not just changed how our start up is run, but it has also personally changed all our lives."
