“Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.” Originally from Bangladesh, I moved to the United States five years ago seeking an opportunity to further my education. Being the first in my family to attend college, I set out on a path with little guidance and financial stability, yet very determined to pursue my intellectual curiosity for internet technology.
That decision led me to LaGuardia Community College, where I am currently majoring in Computer Operations, with an emphasis on Network Administration and Cyber Security. Upon completion of my coursework at LaGuardia, I plan to further my education at a four-year institution and ultimately pursue a career that focuses on enhancing the social media experience through cyber security.
I’m grateful for the resources and network provided by America Needs You, making my journey a lot less lonely. Being a part of the program has already strengthened my confidence and allowed me to not just think about a future focused on my career pursuits, but one that also encompasses helping others achieve their goals.
