Rumman: A story of blessings

Getting out from your comfort zone and studying in an alien environment is not an easy thing to do, but it bears the greatest rewards. Studying abroad has always been a dream for me, and the Great White North was always my pick whenever I thought about that dream. Getting admission into one of Canada’s premier colleges was a dream come true.

My story started in March 2012 with Business – Marketing (co-op) in the Lawrence Kinlin School of Business. As of March 2015, I have completed two exchange semesters (the Netherlands and Wales, UK), three co-op work terms at Voyageur Transportation Services, and I have a GPA of 4.05. I am a recipient of eight awards (including two national and a provincial award) within the last two years. As a volunteer I proudly represent school and community values in all commitments.

I owe my ongoing success to Fanshawe College, to all faculty, staff, administration and colleagues. I am truly grateful for their support and encouragement!

To find one thing that is best about Fanshawe College is almost an impossible task. I appreciate all that this glorious institute has to offer. The facilities and opportunities it provides to its students are a class apart. Enjoying is a word that can do little to explain my feelings right now, I am simply loving my life at Fanshawe and the best is yet to come.

Back home I was shy and nervous who was afraid of taking a leap of faith. I am now a guy who loves to take challenges head on. Fanshawe taught me how I could tap my full potential and grow from strength to strength.

There is no looking back now. I have just one way to go and that’s FORWARD!
