Major: Community Development
Minor: Indigenous Nations Studies
Graduation Date: June 12, 2016 Not Counted Because: Transferred; Started Part-Time

I worked two part-time jobs and volunteered at a neighborhood non-profit organization during my first quarter at Portland Community College. I remained part-time for two years, balancing work, volunteerism, and education. After completing transferrable credits, I dual-enrolled at PCC and Portland State University.

After graduation I will be an AmeriCorps volunteer leading community partnerships programming for a non-profit in Portland. I will subsequently work on my second self-published chapbook about her experiences being Arab-American in a post 9/11 world.
