I really enjoyed learning what things were made of and how everything fit together in the world. Both of my parents were very loving and supportive.

    My experience in the passport project has shaped my understanding of learning and creativity by helping me to have insight into myself and my learning, to learn to overcome challenges, to set goals to reach certain targets, to think ahead to the future, to research efficiently and to find people and artists that inspire me.

I felt that it helped the students when their mind was constantly reminded of what they previously learned.…
