What they say about us


Ho frequentato un corso presso la MUD fra la fine di giugno e l'inizio di luglio 2021.  
Indubbiamente, è stata una delle esperienze più importanti che abbia fatto, sia a livello di preparazione a questo tipo di lavoro - e di questo ringrazio infinitamente Sabina che ha saputo insegnare persino ad una persona completamente priva di basi come procedere e migliorare a livello tale da diventare una MUA, ma anche dal punto di vista umano.  
Spero di poter tornare presto a studiare il livello successivo.
