Farah Hassan Ahmedi ’10 wanted to become the first in her family to earn a college degree, and after completing two summer school classes, Ahmedi officially received her bachelor’s degree in international business and management in August.

She participated in Commencement but “when my summer school is over, I want to put my gown on again to really celebrate,” says Ahmedi. She was not able to attend classes during spring term because she was married June 3, 2009, and gave birth to a baby boy, Jusuv Elham Hassan, in May.
