"From working with Helen O grady I became passionate about child development. I started to educate myself about it so I can give nothing less than a 100%. I was a messy and unorganized person but working here gave me the chance to improve myself to the better so I can improve other people’s lives. During the summer sessions I was challenged to think outside the box and teach dance which I was very insecure..."
