“I absolutely adore AC. I have learned more than I could ever expect, and I have been inspired and challenged on a whole different level. What I love most is that the environment is so friendly, I feel at home. It’s amazing to wake up in the morning knowing that I’ll be going to a place where I can pursue my passion, a place where I know I’m appreciated and loved.”
