Monique Bryan-Johnson is one of two SUNY Nassau Community College students named to the 2021-2022 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) All-New York Academic team.
"As a returning student, I came to SUNY Nassau because it was an affordable option to return to college. I am thankful to have met some amazing professors who are more than willing to go above and beyond to help students succeed in their studies. I also made some lasting connections at SUNY Nassau. I'm so glad I chose this College to grow as a student and as a person.
When I received an email from Phi Theta Kappa I did some research and decided to accept its invitation to be a part of their its honor society. While I was on the PTK scholarship portal, I completed their general application and was nominated. I am so honored to be recognized for my academic achievements, leadership accomplishments and engagement in community service.
I'm not absolutely certain what I want to do as a profession. I have been accepted to Columbia University and plan on pursuing my Bachelor's degree. I am interested in becoming a teacher to help and encourage women -- especially women of color -- to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) degrees. But I also have an interest in cybersecurity."
My decision to attend NCC after high school stemmed from a variety of reasons. I had a lack of direction on what career to pursue, and I certainly noted the astronomical tuition costs at the schools that offered me admission. When doing my research, I noticed NCC's commitment towards its students.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
