    Thank you HFPA!

    Melanie Lowe-Martin (verified owner)

    I’d like to thank all the lecturers, who helped during this rough Covid time, it was a testing year and HFPA pulled through due to the dedicated and fully committed staff. HFPA offered nothing but the best for their students even during the biggest pandemic in a couple decades.

    My experience at HFPA has been filled with pure joy and happiness. I never in my life thought I’d say this, but i actually enjoyed waking up early and going to college to study. I would arrive at the campus at 8, i would gym until 9, and study for half an hour till my 9:30 class with the infamous Lecturer, Zahra. Monday’s to Wednesday’s HFPA gave me a purpose, and fulfilled my inner hopes and made me get closer to my dreams. The days Thursday-Sunday, i was just dying to get back to college again.
