Spending time in the industry, I have seen the obstacles involved in providing quality access to education. This, among other things, has made me more aware than ever of the great privilege to have had my education at AMI. I often credit a large portion of my success at this point in my life to the firm foundation I received in school. The small class sizes were beneficial not only because of the ability to get individualized attention from teachers, but also with the development of my leadership potential in a plethora of activities from student councils to cross school competitions and Human Rights Awareness Programs. Activities like traditional kathak dance that opened my mind; to civic classes and health awareness sessions that shaped me to be a better person in life. As an adult, I continue to be blessed by friendships that began at AMI because of how close-knit the student body is. For these reasons and more, I will be forever grateful for my time at AMI and the teachers that attributed to the successes in my life thus far.
