Why Godwin?

In every life, there is a life-changing moment of discovery.  It may be the sudden rush of confidence when you master something difficult.  It may be the joy at finding a talent you didn’t know you had.  It may come from a passage in a book, a walk in the mountains, or something a teacher says that stays with you.  Attending Godwin is also a turning point.
