- I consider the program a gift that was given to me at this particular time, had it been presented to my earlier I would not have been able to benefit as it is now .. If it was presented later, it may have been too late.
- At the beginning of my first training day I had thoughts: Why am I here and I have got countless duties and tasks to do? Now, in the last day, I can say how much I want these days to continue.
