  1. Asif Khan

    Hello, I am Asif Khan, I am interested in business, I chose accounting because it seems interesting and I’m up for a challenge. I enjoyed reading “You” by Caroline Kepnes, which later became the Netflix original. I have also read books written by Jane Austen and Fyodor Dostoevsky. I enjoy playing basketball in my free time or hanging out with my cousins.

      Thanks for replying so soon, Asif.

      Actually, I was not planning to use WordPress and think it is better for everyone to be on the same page, so to speak and to post discussion question answers that I pose on OpenLab.

      This introduction of yourself was nice to read.

  2. Ashley Adhar

    Hi everyone ! I am Ashley Adhar. I am interested in the medical field which is the reason I’m choosing to major in nursing. Growing up, it was always something that sparked an interest. Before the virus, I spent some of my time volunteering at a local nursing home which made me even more passionate about going into the medical field. Something I enjoy doing during my free time is dancing and playing volleyball.

      Please see my comments to Asif above.

    Hey, how’s it going! I am Christian Saavedra and I’m interested in technology. I chose Computer Information Systems for my major as I want to become a database administrator, I’ve been hooked on using technology since I got my first tablet and saw people playing Minecraft on their PCs through youtube. As for doing stuff on my free time, I either ride my bike or play video games on my free time. 🙂

  6. Elda Idrizi

    Hey, I am Elda Idrizi and I am a dental hygiene major for the first year of college and plan on onward. I chose this field because I was inspired by my internship at a dentist office my junior year of high school. On my spare time I like to do something that relaxes me such as painting my nails. I enjoy watching tv shows in the genre of comedy.
