I would really recommend [it] to other students…think outside the box and relish the challenge. You feel so welcome here. There’s a lot of people you can learn from, there’s a lot of cultures you can be exposed to for inspiration, and by going a traditional route, you kind of miss out on a big opportunity to develop yourself and make something happen.
