"Sunita was an absolutely amazing resource to have help me during the establishment of my company. We structured my company as a nonprofit and Sunita was critical in the entire process- from filing my articles of incorporation, to finally becoming tax exempt. Her responses and willingness to help me in every facet of the process and her engaging attitude was worth more than I could have possibly hoped for. Thank you so much Sunita and I am looking forward to having you help with Young and Brilliant in the future!"
