"For me personally, I’ve never been the type of person to ever really learn a lot in the classroom. I always told my friends at school that I’m not a big school guy. But, all the learning I feel like I’ve done in my life has been through experiences. I think the most learning comes out of experiential learning, and that’s why I think that this program resonates with me a lot."
