If I could identify one thing that made a difference, it would be Great Bay. I talk all the time about how much Great Bay changed my life and gave me a huge foundation. I am incredibly grateful for my time there.

I believe that through studying for my English degree, I have become a more open-minded, sympathetic and empathetic person.
