I have come so far from my Al-Karim School days…!

I remember my earliest memories of being a Kindergarten girl student and having someone throw out of the window the prettiest pink London Fog winter coat my mother had bought me to wear to school for winter. Another child saw my coat and threw it like eight floors down. A day later I got back my coat but it was soiled and very dirty and my new cute little pink London Fog winter coat was ruined. I still remember that. I am proud to say I wore school uniforms for almost all my years in school except grades 7 thru 9 and 11th and 12th grade. Now that I’m 35 I have values that were taught to me as a child or that I grew up with. I cannot believe I’m on payroll on Mercer and I’m schizophrenic. That’s krazy! I couldn’t believe I got an email from Harvard Extension School inviting me to work toward a degree or certificate program. I want to get my Master of Liberal Arts from Harvard I won’t lie. That is the opportunity of my lifetime. You need to take and pass three preadmission courses with a B or better and then you are admitted to Harvard but your three preadmission courses count toward your degree. That’s sweet! Harvard is the best school in the country. Ayesha at Harvard in the future…maybe?
