Rumi Islam is an international student at Parkland College. She earned a scholarship in India to come here.
"Studying at Parkland College is such an amazing dream," she said.
Rumi deeply appreciates the great opportunity she has been given, because she feels that Parkland College and life in the U.S. are giving her a lot of knowledge as well as the keys to being successful in her life and future career.
Although she is not currently involved in any club at Parkland, Rumi likes the wide variety of intercultural exchanges she has participated in during her first semester here.
"You can meet people from amazing countries and learn other languages, cultures, and religions in the same place," she said. "I love being an international student here because Parkland makes me feel at home. The people are nice and the instructors inspire me; they always teach with passion, which makes me happy and encourages me to have good scores and try to be better every day."
Rumi will return to India in May 2011, but she is going to keep with her all the great memories and knowledge that she has received at Parkland College.Written by Jennifer Martinez Romero, Parkland student
