Ambassador Testimonials

"The Bumper Ambassador program taught me how to begin investing. I was never taught in school and felt super unprepared for adult finances. Now, I'm on track to have over $1 million saved for retirement."
- Ananya J., Los Altos High School (10th Grade)
"I was applying to college for business and realized I never had any actual experience in business. The Bumper Ambassador Program gave me real-world experience at a startup, and I think it really helped my college application."
- Emily P., Thomas Jefferson High School (11th Grade)
"For people passionate about business, economics, or finance, the program is such a great way to get experience and knowledge through being a part of Bumper's journey; it's a great learning opportunity that is very engaging and fun, so I highly recommend joining!"
- Melvin J. (11th Grade)
