"Watching Paloma learn that she is going to be a typical college student just like all her peers was a dream come true for all of us. All of you should feel encouraged that you are helping bring purpose to the lives of all your students. You are the changing world’s perspective of what people with special needs can do. I just can’t say enough good things about the Mason LIFE program. I hope her joy is contagious to all of Mason and makes everyone proud to be a Patriot!" - Paloma Wile's Family
