Amazing life-changing experience

This program has been amazing so far, and we have not been here that long. We have been challenged in all kinds of ways! Academically, it is very rigorous and tough, plus it brings issues and things that one do not learn in class. Additionally, the internship program, the mentorship and the public policy research plus the professional briefings in the amazing places we have been to make this unique and incomparable to anything out there. I love the program and so far it has challenged me personally, socially, spiritually, academically and has shaped my future in different ways. I cannot wait to see how it finishes!
