"I think the reason anyone should go to GIA is not just for the experience itself, but for the way it will open your eyes. To the fact that yes, there are people exactly your kind of crazy, and guess what, they want to find people their kind of crazy too. I was put to my imaginative limits, as well as my comfort limits towards a stage (Though that bit was optional...) I found people I will never lose, and never want to. I was exhausted from how full the days were, but I still wanted more. It still helps me, it has made me more open, more talkative, I'm not afraid of people or life anymore, and that means an awful lot to someone who used to sit in the corner in silence whenever there were more than ten people in a room."
