"I am very thankful for so many learning opportunities, that I’ve been given in the institute. Being part of the Berklee Global Jazz community has taught me a lot about humanity and to value others around me. It's taught me the principle of giving as a way to broaden our knowledge, and a way to say thank you to the higher power. It's encouraged self-improvement, and working on oneself as a tool for the betterment of our society."
