What advice would you give a new student?
Ariana: Know that you are not alone and that there are people out there that want to help you. Don't let this opportunity pass you by, give it your all, and reach for the stars.
Arion: Be yourself, don't be afraid to ask questions, and don't be nervous about traveling for your summer program (it's not as bad as you think). Also don't take this for granted because not everyone gets an opportunity like this.
