GELI gave me all the tools that I needed in order to be successful in my degree program. They made me feel more confident in myself and gave me the tools to ensure that I was able to be successful in my first trimester of my university program.  All of my teachers were very supportive both with studies and also with giving us tips about living in Australia. I was able to build strong relationships with both my teachers and my classmates.
