"I don’t think words can adequately describe my experience during the entire MINT training. It was such a fantastic learning experience. I learned so much. I enjoyed myself. You and Cristiana did a phenomenal job of building our skills and keeping us engaged. I met wonderful peers… What more can I say, except that I’m beside myself with glee. Thank you."
