"RDC programs changed my mindset. Discovered that I have the power within myself to shape my future. No longer I think 'client doesn't understand' or 'will I find a job after university'. I've learned to empathize, understand, trust my capabilities, set goals and achieve them."

- Sabrina Apostu, Graduate UAD 2019
