Tayler, PWSC student

"Moving 4,500 miles away from home was the most life-changing thing I have ever experienced. I remember flying over Anchorage and looking out the window realizing how big it was and thinking about how I was now going to be living somewhere totally new, knowing absolutely no one! Despite my initial fears, everything worked out. I am now lucky enough to work and study at a school where I can call my co-workers my best friends and go to college staff if I am struggling. I never thought I would be able to feel so connected in such a short amount of time. " - Tayler Hehir, Hillsdale, New Jersey
