Life is a ladder of success and the more effort you put into reaching the highest steps, the more you will get from life. My journey to America was just one of the steps on the ladder.

Coming to Westchester Community College at age seventeen was daunting. However, I had a need to pursue an education in the United States. Since I have been at the college, I have become very active in and out of class. I am proud to say that I am part of the Honor Program and a member of the National Honor Society. In addition to my college activities, I also participate in programs sponsored by the Arabic church in my community and continue to hold a part-time job.

To say my life is hectic is an understatement, but I never lose my focus on the next step of the ladder—to graduate from Westchester Community College and continue to earn a master’s in Business Administration.
