Broward College sophomore Fernando Pesantes, who attended the event after a last-minute invitation, liked the intimacy of the setting and was glad he made time for the event. “This was awesome,” Pesantes said. “It’s a lot better than what I expected and a lot better than advertised. It definitely kept me captivated the whole time and it was really cool. [Berman] is inspirational, especially as he talks about his past experiences and his answers for the questions were all really good.”
Students and faculty asked Berman questions about his life and experiences during his visit, which was moderated by Willis Holcombe Center Associate Dean of Academics Thomas Nguyen.
