Meet Huda Dhaif, who has always valued education, and now is pursuing a path of teaching others.
“I moved to the United States in 2002 from Iraq, having already finished high school and five years studying religion at Almurtdha University in Damascus, Syria.”
As a mother of a growing family, Huda’s educational journey was often interrupted, but her passion for education remained ingrained in her. She started at CCA as an ESL student to improve her English-language skills, and is now studying Elementary Education.
“Two semesters in the classroom at CCA and reassurance from faculty such as Susan Achziger have convinced me that I can continue on my path to become something important in the community and make my family proud.”
Huda envisions herself as a public school teacher one day so she can pass her love of learning on to others.
Keep pushing towards your goals Huda, we know you can do it!
