I’ve always wanted to challenge myself for everything and this school particularly has opened doors for me. I feel like it’s a really good way to get started on everything I want to do. It’s been really wild and it’s a lot of homework, but it’s a good way to stay ahead and it’s a good way to save money on college too. I’m going to have one less year to pay for.
