We are all fueled by motivation, and my upbringing in the small country of Kosovo is the source behind mine and why I live my life with no lack of ambition. Immigrating to the United States has made me more appreciative of the opportunities that are now available to me. Currently I attend the City College of New York where I am discovering my passion for cultures, languages, people, and business. Business as a field is very diverse and the opportunities are endless. That is the ideal environment that I want to thrive in.
At City College I am part of the lacrosse club; a sport that has taught me what it means to persevere as well as be a part of a team and collective effort. The club itself has a history that dates back to the college’s founding and it gives me great pride and honor to keep the tradition alive. I also volunteer with New York Cares, a nonprofit organization that aims to repair communities throughout New York City. My involvement with this organization brings me joy and satisfaction because I am pursuing my life goal of making a positive impact in the lives of others.
I am truly grateful to be starting my America Needs You journey and look forward to obtaining plenty of new experiences and knowledge from the program. I believe America Needs You is the platform that will enable me to become an inspiration to the members of my community.
