During my month at 701 Creative, I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge, confidence and guidance. By taking the Regional Rail from Rosemont to Jefferson Station I was able to get the full ‘Philly adult worker experience’. Feeling the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the city is what I was longing for since coming to school in August, 2015.

During I had the opportunity to enroll in classes at the National University of Ireland in Galway. As an accounting major, taking a course on global healthcare was a new experience. The topics we discussed were very intriguing and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone.
