Where did you grow up and what led you to study at Sheridan?Originally from Afghanistan, I moved to Canada in 2002, eventually settling in Kitchener, Ontario. I completed high school in Kitchener and moved to Mississauga in 2007. I always wanted to work in an office environment, and when I read the opportunities that were associated with Sheridan’s program, I immediately signed up. I knew that it might take me some time to reach the position I wanted but I found that the program gave me the foundation that I needed.
It was a bit strange to enter a class dominated my females. But as the days went by, I created a bond with my new classmates – both women and men. I am still in touch with many of my close friends from Sheridan.
