After exhaustive research, I came along CDS, and I can only feel the luckiest person on Earth: My tutor is a great person to work with, and so far he’s been pushing me to limits I thought I could never reach, being completely out of my comfort zone, which is all I could ask for, with the convenience of not having to change my daily life, and being able to commit to work and family just as usual.
