Testimonial: Amanda Huels, Illinois Wesleyan University

Amanda Huels

Participating in the Chicago Program offered me a new lens from which to view the world and an entry into an underground aspect of the workings of the city. I became engaged in multiple social justice movements and was inspired to take what I had learned back to my college campus with me. The greatest lesson I learned from my instructors at ACM is that knowledge and wisdom work their way from the ground up, and that the greatest learning experience someone might have can come from interactions with very unexpected characters. The Urban Studies program prepared me more than I could have hoped for with how to take on the world in my life after college as a caring and concerned citizen.
