“With the help of STAR, I have come a very long way and I have set myself up for a bright future. I have set my goals high and I have challenged myself more. STAR has definitely taught me self-perseverance. During my years of being a STAR student I have learned responsibility. I have learned to take my work seriously and choose which things were more important.”
