“I have read a lot of the other students study experiences and I can relate to them, however my experience had a twist. It was very difficult to work, study and look after my sick mother. But with the love and support from A.O.Y, I could go through my studies at my own pace. I have already signed up for a new course. I am grateful for everything A.O.Y did for me. Thank you!
