“Everyone I’ve met (at Eastern) is there to support me and help me out in every shape or form. It’s very welcoming and comforting to know that I have a community around me to support me and lift me up. It’s a place where you’re welcome and where you’re going to grow as a person. And, if you allow yourself to, it’s a place that can transform.”
