Testimonials

"It felt really awkward for me at first after being out of school for 15 years and finally going back to college sitting there with a bunch of kids coming out of high school wondering what am I doing here. Everything I was learning was new, how am I going to fit in with these kids, is this for me. Yes, everything was new I managed to catch on to everything I never learnt before, gain some new friends and was a role model to a lot of the younger students and managed to last the whole two years."
