This period in prison has been one of the worst experiences of my life. I was very sad and depressed. I felt within me that my whole system was in prison. I found it very difficult to interact with the other inmates. But since I have been in this course with the Prison SMART I feel better. I feel within my soul that I am free. I have a better connection with the other inmates. So I want to say thank you to Prison SMART for coming into my life at a time where I needed it the most.

It is a pity that I had to do 6 years of imprisonment before I was offered to attend this course. This course should definitely be part of the mandatory programs in prisons. Very very very good!

This course was a great experience for both soul and body. I am very thankful for this period and to the teachers for your social offer and your concern. Best of luck for further courses! I will certainly recommend it to other inmates.
