"There were interactions in my class that have felt more authentic than 95% of the rest of my 'real life,' and it was terrifying, freeing and exhilarating. 
I am so grateful. I found myself."

"The Workshop has been a transformative experience for me. I've met friends I'll have for life and I've learned more than I could've imagined.
As a man of color it's not always easy to find environment where you feel completely welcome and you are really seen. AWI is that place for me."
