I moved to United States three years ago. I continued my education after all the hardships. Being married, and new to United States was not an easy task. But my community, mosque and muslim friends helped me alot. They helped me in every possible manner.

When I moved to the United States four years ago, I left a lot of dreams, memories, friends, and family behind me, because coming here happened quickly and was not expected, and this made me less motivated to work. But then I realized that I need to have a purpose and not waste the opportunities I am getting. So, I worked hard and got into college to pursue my dream. I am in my second year now and I am so glad that I got into college and did not just ignore my future like I did when I first moved here. In America, I think that there are a lot of opportunities and resources for people to use which is what I did. In here, I take every chance that I can to expand my knowledge in all fields like financially or academically to make sure that I achieve freedom later in life.

Is this Scholarship only available for undergraduates?

Many experiences and situations shaped me into who I am today. To be honest, I don't define myself as one thing because now as I am open to all these great opportunities to live a normal and stable life, my identity changes from what I experienced through. I am grateful for everything that has come and will in the future and therefore entering in this scholarship will lead me to think more of my journey.

I came here to study and its my dream to be the first child in college.My dad and mom dont have high education but its my dream to be in college, also want to be successful in future.
