    I get along with everybody in my class. We’re like a tight little knit family. We’re always looking to help each other out – there’s no competition. And that takes so much pressure off in the classroom. You don’t get nervous when you have to put your hand up in class to ask a question or do a presentation because you know people aren’t judging you. And we all go out and celebrate after exams, and we’re all here studying till one o’clock in the morning. We’re just always there for one another.
