One thought on “Michael Cohen and Leigh Raiford Interview”

  1. Yes I agree I mself will not be interested because instead of me reading and researching about my assignments I’m working for my tuition fee.Time is also important as well as health.I think we should give priority to our students and give programs to students who can’t afford and not to let their future jeopardize.Bringing awareness will do help through social media.
