"My background is Pakistani. I came to the US as a teenager, went to high school but was not allowed to go to college. I married at the age of 20. I always wanted to study further, and my husband let me join SUNY Nassau Community College. Unfortunately, I couldn't complete my associate's degree due to complications in my pregnancy.
I now have two biological boys and two adopted girls. I raised my children, and when they were in middle school, I went back to school and completed my master's degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. I am currently finishing my Psy.D in Human and I/O Psychology with a leadership concentration. I am passionate about creating opportunities for our community members, students and organizations.
I hope that I am motivation for the many girls and women who believe once they get married and have kids, it's all over for them. I believe if you want something, do not give up and believe in your God."
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.

Going back to school was honestly the best choice for me. As an adult student, I felt focused and goal driven because I knew the expectations of the real world. The NCC - SUNY Empire State College Multi-Award Nursing Program prepared me for my future in so many ways.

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.
