When you come into the building, you could actually be a kid, be a student, be free. You're not looking over your shoulder, you're not worried about who's going to walk up on you. You don't have to worry about somebody knocking you upside... It's not about any of that. It's all about education, meeting you where you are and helping you be the most successful person that we could possibly give you.
