“For me it’s been a very very transformative experience, coming here I didn’t know what to expect really, but beyond not really having many expectations I guess as the program went on, the few that I came the program met and exceeded them…Coming here I felt very welcome, despite the language barriers sometimes, I didn’t feel like the other, and that is something that has been very important to me.”

“I have learned about a lot of my cultural background from recent years and early periods of political culture…Especially our African influence into our cultural, its been very enriching experience because now I have a more conscious about our role in society, and what we can do in activism or cultural unity.”
