I love Yeshiva, because the atmosphere is pleasant and safe. I also love all my professors, because they are very caring, empathic, geniune and understanding. My professors explore my mental and challenge my thought process because they want me to stay sane and be able to accomplish my goals to be a skilled professional in my field as a social worker.
