    "I was a little apprehensive while registering to the AUS summer camp; for I didn't know how it was going to be especially it will be virtual. It was a thrilling experience, even though, my laptop was a Mac system, so I had trouble accessing some of the applications. but, thankfully the organizers replied to me rapidly; whenever I had trouble or a question (in general). The staffs that organized the camp were teachers and mentors from AUS were the best! They were all patient with us and the level of the program was somehow meeting the levels of everyone attending, from the beginners to the advanced students. There is no way, to not have new information in every lesson. That's what I liked about it! Looking back at the camp, I will say that this camp was the highlight of my vacation. I would like to thank every teacher and organizer that made this a major success yet so much fun!"

    "In 6 days, I learned that when you are confident and when you know what tools to use, then you will win the game of school and of life. At AUS summer camp I learned I can achieve any goal I have. The best part of the whole experience was the home IO on which I proved to myself I can do anything I put my mind to. I have learned many lessons that will serve me well over the course of my lifetime. This summer it was accepting myself and becoming more confident. Before these past two summers. Today. I have grown as a person trusting my ability to accomplish goals, problem solve, and look deeper than the surface into situations and relationships. I feel more prepared to accept and meet challenges in life, rather than giving up or worse, not even trying. I realize if I am willing to face my fears I will have the confidence to succeed in life with whatever I do."

The outstanding efforts of the AUS faculty made this question easier to answer. This camp exposed me to various topics in the world of computing. Furthermore, it added this wonderful feild to my list as a valid option. Who knows? I might join the CSE family some time in the not-so-far future!"
