Real Stories from Real Students:

“I feel like here I actually like learning and going to school. When I first came here I decided I wanted to live here the rest of my life so I thought it would be better for me to stay here and graduate from here so I could go to college. My dream for myself is that one day I can become a screen writer and actor.”

Barbara from Brazil
