My name is Dinora. I’m originally from Uzbekistan, located in Central Asia that is full of ancient buildings and beautiful people. I came to the United States in 2013 and living in Brooklyn, New York ever since. I use she/her/hers pronouns. When I was graduating high school, I decided to attend college and get my Bachelors degree and the reason was to get a better job and to improve myself so that I can do more and go further with my life that I could without a degree from college. I am a senior student at this school and majoring in Bioinformatics. The reason I am taking this class is that I had to take one class from the category “Creative Expression”, which was required and I thought this class is going to be interesting. My hobbies are to read and travel. Although, I don’t get to travel much, I adore every moment I get into.
This is the picture of a sunset on a Coney Island Beach. The reason that I love to watch sunset because it gives me a greater appreciation for the earth. Whenever I am stressed from school or having a bad day and watching the sunset on the beach gives me a better mood, relive my stresses and I somehow lose track of time and feel more satisfied and grateful for what’s going on in front of me. Another reason why sunset is important to me is that sunsets mark the end of a day, as well as represent calm and a promise for a new beginning. Sunsets serve as a powerful reminder to take time to relax and reset our hearts at the end of each day.
Hey everyone, my name is Deshira! I’m currently a Nursing major here at City tech. The pronouns that I go by are her/she. I come from a traditional Albanian household. I came to America when I was three years old, and been living in Brooklyn practically my whole life. On my free time, I like going to the gym, watching movies, spending time with family and friends, shopping etc. I really enjoy going to school in person because I like interacting with people, and the overall experience of being in school. Ever since I was younger, I preferred being taught in person rather than online so once the pandemic hit, it was very difficult for me to adapt to the new learning strategies. Ive never really been good with technology either which made my online learning experience worse. After all this time, I feel like I finally got used to this new system, but I can’t wait to go back to school in person.
The most important and meaningful thing to me is my mom. This picture is not a picture of me and my mom, but it demonstrates an image of a mother and her daughter holding hands. Im really grateful for my mom and the relationship we share. She is my biggest supporter and pushes me to move forward in life and succeed. Not only is she a mother to me, but a best friend, and I am very thankful to have her in my life.
My name is Mehreen Khanom, I go by she/her/hers. I am South Asian. I was born in Bangladesh and raised in the Bronx. I am a sophomore, and my major is business and technology of fashion. The reason why I am in college is because of my parents and to pursue a good career in the future that will keep me stable in life. My hobby is painting. I like to paint in my free time and whenever I am bored to kill time or to get my mind off life. This semester I am trying to focus on college and don’t want to get distracted. I am scared about this semester because I am not sure how this semester will end but I hope it ends well.
I am a mother of six cats. Growing up I have always been a cat person, but my parents never allowed cats in the house until my sophomore year of high school. Last year I brought a stray cat home and four months later she gave birth to three beautiful babies. They are currently five months old. Their names are Boogie, Sushi, and Mowgli. Taking care of them and watching them come into this world was an eye-opener. I can’t go a week without seeing them, that’s how attached I am. I feel like without them the house will feel empty. Sometimes when I am upset, spending time and being around them makes me feel a lot better. They make my life ten times better.
