“Filstar helped me and supported me through my academics. Teachers like Mr Rigor and my tutors helped me pass my WASL and get [me] into the University of Washington. Now they are supporting me in every decision that I make and leading me in the right direction. Filstar is really good for high school students especially those who have big dreams like I do.” "" - Jhenalyn Rapanan
