MY JOURNEY AT AQB College

I would like to utilize this platform to speak about my project and make it speak of me. The Debate Coaching Program is the greatest gift AQB gave to me. I started this initiative during my first year at college, and now it is in its 4th year. Fortunately, my initial idea was met with great support from the Student-Led Initiatives office headed by Winta Mehari at the time who is now a dear friend. This project gave me the opportunity to create a visible and measurable impact in my community that I am very proud of. I encourage all students, especially those joining us in Fall 2020 to start their projects and community-centered initiatives.

Studying at AQB for the past four years has shaped me and prepared me as an engaging and motivating leader in a wide range of areas. In my third year at AQB, I was selected to participate in the Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program in NY. This unique opportunity to study and intern at PEN America has shaped my personality as a human rights student and a professional in the field. So, I can confidently say that I am ready to navigate the academic and professional world with confidence, compassion, and an appreciation of complexity.

I was running after perfection, but I realized that nothing has to be perfect. Imperfection teaches us a new lesson every day. It was not my first time holding a camera, but this time I have won over my phobia towards it. There was a childish scream inside me saying I did it, even better than anybody. I broke one of my borders, and now I am learning to be free.
