“I wanted to say whole heartedly…Thank you both for taking time out of your schedules to answer my questions. You don’t know how much I really appreciated that. I was feeling lost for a while and questioning whether taking the exam again was right for me. And I’m glad to know that there are still some people out there that would help a stranger in need and not ask for anything in return. It is my pleasure to tell you the that I PASSED!”
