Fun course
by Steven W. on April 20, 2024
This course is very informative and interesting. Charts, graphs, and other infographics are included, though more can be added to condense information and provide an easier means to remember the information.

by Catherine C. on April 19, 2024
Sophia was challenging for me at first, but as I got taught more in math in general it made more since to me.
by Joel w. on April 19, 2024
This course was short but very informative and very helpful for an aspiring leader like myself. It also helped me understand how to view or understand when I receive feedback. I highly recommend it!!
