Equilibria is a MUST for everyone

“Before I enrolled for Equilibria’s gap year, I thought I was pretty smart and knew a lot about life. But now, looking back, I realize how ignorant I was about a lot of things!

The course helped me to get a grip on life. I will use the skills I have learned at Equilibria every day for the rest of my life.

The course helped me to discover the perfect career for myself and it was so much fun! It is a real investment in my future.”
