Please provide thoughtful and thorough responses to the following four questions. The text boxes for your responses will expand, so please provide a thorough response of several sentences.

(Not only do we want you to write about this, but we also want to have a clearer understanding of how we can help you succeed.)

(We don't expect you to know exactly what you will be doing, but we want to get a sense of the hopes and dreams you expect MVNU will help become a reality for you.)
