I am taking the Graphic Design Class and I was a bit worried because I had no experience but I am thrilled with the experience!!! I have learned so very much! I thought I would be overwhelmed but I am not, the class it face-paced but not too much so that I cant keep up. I am definitely taking another class as soon as this one wraps up.
I am taking the graphics design class all the way from zambia lusaka. I was very worried of how it will be .
