I owe so much to IDI and especially to my tutor who helped me without hesitations in sharing his knowledge and time. How I overcome my depression made a great result to my medical condition, I am now cleared from the big C. My family and I are more than thankful to this Institute for opening its doors to those who want to be Interior Designers, be it for hobby, profession or for like me, who needs time to heal.
