My name is Mubarak Haruna. I am a first-year student athlete at Merritt College. I am majoring in Computer Programming and also a soccer player for the Merritt Men’s soccer team. I am an international student from Nigeria.
My experience so far at Merritt has been simply wonderful. I have enjoyed meeting new people from all over the world who have the same interests as me and having professors that care about me and want to see me excel inside and outside the classroom.
I see Merritt as a hub to learn new things, experience new adventures, to think about the world as my playground and challenge myself to make newfangled discoveries. Studying at Merritt has given me the right tools to achieve my dreams of becoming a computer scientist and make a positive impact in the world at large.
Above all, my ultimate dream is to use my knowledge and talents to help people, especially the less privileged and give them hope for a better life. I want to be a role model to others and make a positive difference in the world.
