Transferring to TWU from NCTC was so simple. My on-campus job gave me valuable videography experience which led to a full-time position in my field.

The Minerva Scholarship helped me financially so I did not have to stress over how I was going to pay for school and helped me make connections with other students who also wanted to own their own businesses.
