Where are you from
Where did you transfer from?
Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC)
What led you to your decision to transfer to Goucher?
I wanted to go to a college where the professors would know me by name, I could get to know everyone personally, and not be just “another student.” From talking with current Goucher students, especially transfer students, I found out quickly that Goucher would be a welcoming community that would allow me to be who I am.
What drew you to your major?
After working at my school newspaper my senior year of high school, I found out immediately that Journalism was my passion. After taking Journalism and International Politics courses at community college, I found that the Professional Writing and International Relations majors were a perfect fit for me.
What would you like to do after graduating?
I would love to go to graduate school either somewhere in the United States or in another country. If I decide to hold off on graduate school, I would want to work for a newspaper or news station to gain more editorial and reporting experience.
What are your other interests and passions?
When I’m not in classes, I am interested in learning more about my religion. After becoming a Muslim last year, I spend time reading and researching more about Islam, getting involved in Muslim Circle at Goucher, and I volunteer at my local mosque. I also enjoy doing yoga, baking, and recently began playing tennis.
What do you consider to be the important aspects of the Goucher experience?
One tool is your First Year Mentor. My first year mentor made it easy for me to find resources that would help me succeed. Also, she was someone I could always go to for advice or just to chat. Secondly, getting involved on campus can help create lifelong friends and get outside your comfort zone.
