Meet Fadil, a first-generation immigrant and college student who settled in Minnesota from Somalia in 2017. He became a Minneapolis College student this year, majoring in nursing. With a 3.75 GPA (yes – a 3.5 GPA and he’s only been in America for one year!) and a belief that “everything is possible,” Fadil impressively balances both school and work as a medical interpreter in local hospitals and clinics. His goal is to give back to the community and one day become a dentist.
Minneapolis College students contribute to the economic growth and prosperity of our city by working in healthcare, finance, IT and manufacturing. They are well-educated, enthusiastic job seekers, ready to fill the most pressing workforce needs of our community. You help fuel their hopes and dreams of earning a college credential and contributing to the vitality and strength of the Twin Cities.
Invest in students like Fadil who will become tomorrow’s leaders. Together, we can change the world.
