When that went smoothly, I signed up for one summer class at my local community college. I enjoyed being able to take a class again, and received an “A”.

I also established clear career goals beyond graduation. Ultimately, my dream is to become a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Ever since I was little, I have always had a strong desire for justice in the world. I want to work for an organization that can help create a more just society.

During this time I was able to continue shadowing, but experienced a slight set back. Like many individuals, it took me some time to adapt to the college lifestyle and my GPA suffered from that. Upon maturation though I was able to get back onto the right path and develop the necessary habits to achieve things like the Dean’s and President’s Honor Rolls for multiple semesters and was able to declare a minor in

Similar to other immigrants my family history is somewhat compelling. Starting with my grandfather who was exiled out of Egypt in 1959 primarily as a result of the "decolonization process and the rise of Egyptian nationalism”, my immediate family and I also left France in 2004 as a result of rising tension against Jews. The migration of my grandparents and parents, from a young age, cultivated a sense of determination in me to overcome obstacles.

I was determined to and successfully lost my accent and got tested into the gifted program after a year of school.
Wayne County Community College is a focused yet disconnected box. This is understandable; a bulk of the students are older, more experienced, and already involved their field of choice moving towards a known purpose with little time to focus elsewhere. For an older student , this college could be the extent of their educational journey. However, for a younger student, this district is a transitional point rather than an end.

When I researched more, I found the school offers a learning possibility incomparable to any other in the nation and perhaps the world.
