Aida and Octavio, my GED instructors haven’t just helped us as teachers. They push us to keep moving forward, and if we don’t understand them in a certain way they’ll explain it another way. They always connect with us regarding education and always keep us to push going.

Media is weird, it’s very hard to make a living doing it. You have to learn how to use things like Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, Canva and AfterEffects. These are the skills I have learned in Siembra Medios and I am so grateful for this opportunity to gain the skills needed to stand out from the crowd.
