OUR WORK MAKES A DIFFERENCE
I learned a lot about myself that I have not ever been told by anyone else, I guess I
found another part of me. —Kunjame, Student
For myself, but most of all, for students, working on a real, long-term goal that will
produce something tangible is very meaningful. For students, this is often
unprecedented. —Maria, Teacher
