I-BEST Student Testimony @ Green River College

I-BEST Student Testimony @ Green River College

August 25, 2019 1 By Stanley Isaacs


I was in University of Mosul in Iraq when
ISIS come. I was inside in the student home, and it was
a terrible thing because I heard a lot of noises outside, a lot of bombs, a lot of shots,
and we were so scared. My name is Diana Albehadili, I am a refugee
from Iraq, I came to the United States in January of 2015. I-BEST program, it is not just a class for
just nursing assistant, it’s like two classes. The ESL, English, and then the program, and
this is together, will be like learn both classes at the same time. At the same time, all the benefit is just
for you. You have a job, you become smarter, you save
time, and you have two teachers! This has helped me to have a job, because
you know the life is hard here, you need to pay a lot of bills, or for college, so this
is so good to have a job, and you are through your journey to be something you want. So all the I-BEST programs is so good opportunity,
to have at least a job, at the same time you will learn, maybe you will learn the thing
that you love, right, not just English. The hard things make me better.
