This year at Animas has been a completely amazing experience for me as a student and as a part of a community. I have never really fit into the traditional way of thinking about eductation, learning, and the government and it has changed my life as a learner completely coming to Animas. I am getting involved with learning that is relevant to me specifically, that applies to my life. I am motivated, passionate and interested in the things I am learning, and I have been thrilled to become a part of such a supportive community of teachers and classmates. I can't wait to see my journey unfold.
