Be the Change: Final Thoughts

By the riverside As much as I enjoyed all of the empowering and insightful speeches at Stenberg’s Be the Change Conference, it was nice taking a break with a few of my classmates, walking along the riverside and sharing our thoughts about the messages being delivered.

Studying – From Theory to Practical

The best part of Stenberg’s education that I’ve truly enjoyed the most, so far, has been the change in learning style.
