    Kristen presents well. She speaks clearly and has a pleasant voice. She explains AND walks the viewer through each segment. Informative, she shares lots of personal insight. I feel ready to tackle projects.

    Instructor is very knowledgeable and engaging. This a great course for students needing an introduction to the online graphics programs CANVA and Stencil. Also, the bonus list of all the online freebies is invaluable. I hadn’t heard of Buffer before. Thank you for the mini intro to this post planner. I will be signing up!
