Mikayla Kaminsky, 2017

You never doubted me, always supported me, helped me bring my ideas to life, helped me prepare, made sure I had everything I needed. I'm going to be the first in my family to go to college, and I honestly don't know if I would have gone if I hadn't joined FS."

Kaleb Amofa, 2020

The memories in this class are countless.”

Rajeh El Qasem, 2018
