Coming to UWA is a very good choice for me. It gave me a lot of opportunities and chances to get to know people and learn more about the local American culture. With all the other international students, you are actually building the connection with the whole world. It was an awesome experience when I studied at UWA.

The Instructional Leadership program at the University of West Alabama helped prepare me to become an educational leader in multiple ways. First, it challenged my educational philosophy. The program introduced me to curriculum and situations that allowed me to become more open minded in dealing with educational curriculum and specifically with people. Also the program prepared me to become a leader by allowing me to work closely with other leadership minded people from across the state and from various backgrounds. The professional relationships that I was able to form in my time in this program continue to pay off for me to this day. I use the advice and encouragement of my former peers often in my leadership roles.
