The past two years have been some of the most exciting years of my life. I learned so many new things not only in the classroom but also in life. I got to meet so many genuine people here at John Wood. Being an international student was not a problem, because I could always rely on the help of my teammates, coaches, staff, and faculty. John Wood was a great first step in my college career and I’m happy and blessed to continue my studies and athletic career.
