At Occidental I'm fairly involved on the campus: I am a member of the Muslim Students Association, MULTI, International Students Organisation, Dance Pro, Quidditch and I am on the Executive Board for Students for Justice in Palestine. I have really loved the variety of classes at Oxy, I'm currently taking a class on Palestine which is near impossible to find in most colleges. The academics have been difficult, with different writing and referencing styles but my professors have all been very understanding and I was quick to catch up. I received need based scholarship which covered most of my tuition costs, and also an extra low interest loan from the college. To anybody thinking of applying, this is honestly the best decision I could have made, so many opportunities have opened instantly for me... but don't lose your accent!
