Bachelor of Arts in Human Services
Why did you choose Columbia College?
I heard it was a good school to get into.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to use my degree to help empower and help people in every way I can. I hope to go after my Masters soon in order to reach a higher education in my career. This degree is the end of one journey but will allow me to move on to the next step in my career as a counselor.
What was your favorite course, and why?
I enjoyed many courses, but if I had to pick one, it would be Mental Health. I think because of Dr. James and his way of teaching it made the class more interesting but I really did learn a lot in that class.
Is there anyone you would like to thank?
I would like to thank everyone who pushed me to keep going when I wanted to stop. I want to first thank my husband Badr who pushed me to go back to school, I am glad I listened to him. My kids who helped me along the way when I thought I wanted to quit. My son Amin who with out him I would not have been able to do all I did in school. Abudrahman, Hamza, Farah, Faisal, Ahmad, Mshari, and Aiyah, my children, all were the reason I had this dream, to get a college degree. To all my friends who supported me but also to all my professors who supported me and wanted me to succeed I say thank you very much, you help me reach a dream of mine.
