Ms. Laura in Financial Aid was very helpful, friendly, and super nice! I truly appreciated all of the assistance she gave me. Also, our instructors Ms. Nikki, Mrs. Tawanna, and Ms. Bailey definitely understood the assignment! I was in the first cohort and boy it was tough, but very worth it! Wouldn’t trade my experience for anything in the world! Again, I thank those ladies for sticking with us and getting through.
