I am currently majoring in Biology at Kingsborough Community College and want to be an ophthalmologist. I’m very blessed to be in one of the nation’s most famous colleges. I am originally from Central Asia and coming to the United States was a totally new experience. It has been my dream to explore this new country and culture. As always, the life shown on television is different but America has become a place for me to pursue new educational plans. I have learned a new language and have found myself in American society as a student with plenty of opportunities. I’m proud to be a member in a program such as America Needs You.
The New York Fellows Program is great for first-generation college students to find a professional path. This program offers awesome bi-weekly sessions where Fellows come together and learn to promote themselves professionally. We learn to be experts in presenting ourselves and sharpening the skills that are required in our fields of interest. Our Mentor Coaches are the professionals who are ready to answer all questions and guide us to be successful individuals. Thank you for all for making this happen. I wish this opportunity is available for students beyond this program.
