Habiba shares the All-Faiths Prayer Room
“I am using my sociology major as a stepping stone for law school after DYC. With my sociology classes and pre-law minor I get the best of both worlds.”
I am the secretary of Muslim Student Union (MSU), Sociology Club, and the International Student's Club. Since I have been here at DYC, one of my favorite extracurricular activities that I have done is the African Student Fashion Show last spring. I just had a blast for the whole night! A lot of work was put into it and at the end, it all paid off. It was really fun to dress up and show all the work we have been practicing for months. I would really recommend people to get involved because college is what you make out of it. You don't just want to go to class and go home, you want to get as involved as you possibly can. It gives you something to put on your resume but it also helps you get more experiences and get away from schoolwork for little bit.I can basically do anything with my major. It does not prepare me for a certain type of career, so
I have freedom to do whatever I set my mind to. I am using my sociology major as a stepping stone for law school after DYC. With my sociology classes and pre-law minor I get the best of both worlds. My minor helps me to get ready for my law school classes and my sociology classes help me with my interest in social issues.
I have had the opportunity to take some actual law school classes this past summer which has really helped me in choosing my major and if law school is the right move for me. I had a lot to do to get into the program and my DYC professors actually had a hand in helping me get there because they wrote glowing letters of recommendation for me. Career services also helped me with my interviewing skills and putting my resume and cover letters together for the program. I am actually doing research right now with some people I met over there during the summer.
My major actually really suits me, which is saying a lot because I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do. I am very outgoing and I am curious about the world that's around me. I like to educate other people about my culture and I like to learn about other people's culture. I think that makes me unique because that is what makes me have a positive influence on other students. As an immigrant who has not been here that long, there are a lot of things that I just do not understand and I am never afraid to ask those hard questions that everyone else is not asking. I am asking them because I am interested in what someone else can teach about something that I am not familiar with.TOP
