When I enrolled at the school, I was searching for answers, was hoping to start something new and also felt pretty low. Within a few weeks of studying Positive Psychology, my life changed. I learned to savour the present, to listen to others mindfully and reconnected with myself and my people. I also learned that honesty and humour are valued character strengths! Learning different therapies and concepts, from amazingly talented lecturers, has also strengthened the fact that I want to use my own life experiences to pursue a career in counseling to help young adults in the future. Last but not least, some of my peers have become close friends. ‘Other people matter’ alright!
