"My mom is very important to me; I’m a mommy’s girl. Weber was inexpensive and not too far away, and it has one of the top rated Theatre programs in the country, so that was a plus. I am a Technical Theatre major with a minor in Health Promotion. My main goal is to work for Disney at one of their parks. I work a lot! I work about 32 hours a week grave-shift and then I work for a billing company about 30 hours a week. I’m in the Student Senate as the African American Senator. I just want students to know that they should be involved. I feel like we are always told that, but it’s the best thing I could’ve done in college. "
“I’m almost done with my computer science degree. All the professors have made me more hopeful about getting a job in the field. It’s created a great experience here at Weber. I actually left Iran in 2010, to go study computer science in Malaysia, but it’s not the best place to stay in. Since US is leading in technology, I decided to come over on the international student program. I really like the educational system here in US, what is nice about it is throughout your program you are pushed to apply what you’ve learned in the real world. And it helps you, seriously.”
- “ I think my first ever activity here at Weber was the Foam bash, they held it at University Village that year. That was the year it had to be canceled early because of the rain storm. I remember walking back with my roommate, and we were just drenched! That was my first cool and fun experience here! College has been so enjoyable for me because I really put myself out there. I joined clubs, a sorority, and go to activities as often as I can. There really is no reason to complain about nothing happening at Weber, because there is so much going on, you just have to look for it.”
"My father only graduated elementary school and it inspired me to pursue higher education as a First Generation student. College is a pioneering experience for me because I didn't have a mentor to tell me how to get into college or what it is like. I decided to join the First Generation club to get to know other students in a similar situation as me. I also joined other clubs like the Signpost, WSUSA Service Team, and the Asian Student Involvement Association to take advantage of the opportunities that my father didn't have and to prove that First Generation students can do anything when they challenge themselves"
