I wish that the Radha that I am now could been able to let the Radha that I was a year ago, that everything was going to be fine; that I was going to be a 3.9 GPA student and that BMCC had amazing academic opportunities, a solid social network, and great activities available for me.

I love to spend time with my 18 y/o brother and my 15 year old sister. We enjoy going to cinema and Dave and Buster’s together. I love to travel and to volunteer for non-profit organizations

-Finishing my degree.

In what ways has S4S helped you explore college and/or career opportunities that you would not have had otherwise, had you not been involved with the S4S program?
S4S was the first activity that I got involved in. It is a program that gave me the opportunity to meet an amazing person, student, and mentor: Azan. He has helped me in every single need I had during my two semesters here at BMCC. He has gone above and beyond giving me advices and counseling about activities in school, educational websites, clubs, applications to scholarships, and, especially the GUIDE program at BMCC. I am so grateful for having such a great guru as a friend.

What advice would you give to a high school student about how to succeed in college and/or the college application process
My sister is a high school student and I always try to keep her updated with all the programs and scholarship colleges have available to students before and during college. I encourage her to study like all the subjects are your favorite ones, to strive for a 4.0 GPA, and to ALWAYS THINK BIG.
“College is a stressful but fun period of your life, so enjoy every single day of the adventure”.
