I am a first-generation college student happy to be majoring in Cybersecurity here at CCBC. I have lived in Pakistan for several years and came to the United States about 11 years ago. I was brought up in a British educational system and consider myself as a student of knowledge on an open-ended path to learning and scholarship.
