"“I hope that I am being a role model for my children and showing them that if they want something, they can do it... I hope that I’m the example that they need to see that you can pursue what you want, and it’s essential to set reasonable goals for yourself no matter your age.”
“The caliber of instructors is, without a doubt, phenomenal. They always went out of their way to lend a hand and offer their assistance, regardless of their own competing demands.”
