"I am so surprised at how much this has affected me. I have loved every single day - every day has been a new challenge, a new reflection, I’ve deepened another skill and the people I have met have also taught me so much about the world and myself. After taking this course I feel more confident that I can be a leader and I can use constructive criticism to better myself. I’m sad the week is over but can’t wait to take what I have learned and put it into action.”
