Why I chose Animas:
I chose Animas because I am a very visual and hands on learner. I have always had trouble learning and absorbing information when I am working off of a work sheet or listening to lectures, I felt that Animas was a better option for me because of the focus on project based learning. The culture of Animas was a really big part of why I felt it was the right fit for me. Relationships with peers and teachers is a really important part of my education because it creates a tighter knit community that I feel comfortable in. During my time here I want to develop in public speaking and communicating with the general public in professional situations. After coming from a project based middle school I am already familiar with the idea of hands on work and the importance of student-teacher relationships, I am excited to progress these relationships and develop as a student.
