“I want to thank you for your wonderful and inspiring un-presentation yesterday. Your attitude about honesty was very refreshing. I had heard you speak at TechTalk at Windward CC a few months back and was inspired to take the course. You, alone, made the course worth taking. I wish you could have had all 3 days of the workshop!
I’ll be spending the next couple weeks excitedly exploring all the resources you presented. Thank you so very much for the inspiration!
Mahalo nui loa!”
