As a first-generation college student, I have been honored to do my undergraduate studies here at Suffolk University. 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. When I visited Suffolk as a prospective student, I really liked the location and what the computer science program had to offer. I’ll cherish the experiences I have had here for the rest of my life. It was an honor to be the president of the Mathematics Society, senator at-large for the Student Government Association, and a McNair Scholar.
Looking back, I’ve achieved so many great academic and extracurricular accomplishments. I am grateful for the opportunities Suffolk has provided me during the last four years. Suffolk has helped me evolve. No matter what lies ahead, I am ready because Suffolk has prepared me for a future where I can thrive.
