TESTIMONIAL

“Since I started the AU program, they have helped me immensely to improve my reading, writing, math, and computer skills. Especially in my communication skills, they helped me to improve my public speaking, which was a great challenge beforehand. And now I am confident in those skills in my advocacy roles with Mothers of Peace. Motivational Learning helped me incredibly to deal with my personal challenges and set personal goals, which was a blessing. Finally, the digital tech class was an amazing learning experience for me. Before it, I had zero computer skills. Now I can confidently take daily challenges that come in my way, with Technology, English, and Math. And I owe it all to the AU program.“
