This experience, it will stay with you forever you will not forget it I love the people here, they are so nice they open their houses and they make
you like a family member and that’s so great. You can’t find people
like that everywhere and but you can find them in Muscatine Meeting people, meeting
different people because initial when I was
coming here I was like How do I interact with other people because all my life I was just intereacting
with people from my country only so like meeting people knowing people your culture and sharing my own with them that is just the best Here at Scott Community College the first thing that catch my attention
was the availability of the professor outside of class it was um…. kind of they were like able to talk to
us to explain everything to us if we have a question we didn’t
understand at first, because I came without English If we couldn’t understand it they
were like more than happy to make time for you to make sure
that you have everything At school, I loved it from the first minute they have so much variety like you can be part of the theater department or choir department
you can be studying like business management
but have some class in the agriculture field you know there’s so many variety of classes that you can uh… decide your field, whatever interest
you will find it in this college so that’s great my teachers just cause they really, they really help us regarding our ESL classes and
others also They are They are with you asking if you
have any question if you want help and it’s really nice cause if you do not understand any subject
you just go and make an appointment with them come at that time so you just
go with them and have a have a meeting with them, what’s your problem
share with them what you need It was so amazing when I came here because I came here and our advisors my advisor helped me a lot
all the students just coming
here welcomed me right in the hallway and seeing everyone
telling you hi, how are you uh… it was nice I have a lot of experiences but maybe just one of them is
writing articles at the newspaper
here I always have this passion to right but I never uh… did it before so when I did it actually that inspire me to,
when I go back,
I will do it and I will write in newspapers
because people like it to see and to say I, I, I I read your article and I like it and that makes
me feel um so good I participated in PAS business PAS thats Post Secondary
Agriculture students it’s some kind of challenge for
agricultural students we went to waterloo. I contested with other students
from other colleges so at the end we’re like four students, at the end I was mentioned a winner So it’s kind of something pride for me Oh I could actually do this
That’s what I think There is a lot of stuff that you
can enjoy doing There is the Figge museum, you can go there there’s a
lot of parks and nature and it was beautiful
you can go and spend time in the park it’s just amazing because I don’t have
a lot of parks back home and I don’t have a lot of museums
we don’t have a lot of church to go and sing you know it’s just good There’s just a lot a lot a
lot of uh… different majors and different
careers there’s always something that I guess any student will like I gain all those skills here
for many subjects like business business management, marketing and
that will help me to improve my business so that’s what i’m going to do
if you have a plan and you want to do something good in your career, in your future
come and study and we don’t care about if it’s a
small place opr a quiet place
or something like that but come and take the chance go for this chance and try to
do something good for yourself and your country It’s not about how big the place is with how much you can take out of the
place and how much people can help you in the place to grow as a person and as a student that knowledge that you’re going to
get is very helpful for our countries I will encourage any other international students,
they will not regret to come here Either Scott, Clinton or Muscatine Community College
