I was born and raised in Bangladesh. Since my childhood, I used to hear that one day I would come to Boston because my uncle lived there. I was sixteen when I came to the United States and was the first one in my family to even go to high school.
I got into many colleges around the United States. I visited some of them but really did not feel connected to any of them. Then I visited Suffolk University. I really liked the location. While walking around the campus, I remembered my childhood and always hearing that, one day, I would come to Boston. I was finally here. The wait was over. There was no better way to start a new and significant chapter of my life than by joining Suffolk’s Class of 2019.
This is now my third year at Suffolk. Looking back, I’ve had so many great academic and extracurricular accomplishments. I am grateful for the campus resources that provided me with great opportunities for the last two years. Suffolk is helping me evolve. It is preparing me for a future where I can thrive. I am honored and privileged to learn here.
