I want to be a soldier and I did not think I needed to know how the internet works, but now I do and I know why. It is a great tool for communication today and I am amazed at how much useful information I can retrieve.

I thought it was a joke when my mom signed me up for just two days of classes, I never thought I would learn so much, much less learning about animation which is my field of interest.

Opeyemi O., High School Student

At first I was scared when my parents left, because this would be my first time away from home. Later, I got over it when I realized that everybody here was slowly becoming my family.
