Turner reflected on her years at Valwood, "When I attended Valwood it was small and so tailored to the individual that the possibilities seemed endless. My teachers and my experiences at Valwood instilled in me an unshakable confidence and a can do spirit that has never left me. I was told that I could do anything, and I believed it. I still carry on in life like I can do anything if I want it deeply enough and try hard enough."
