My name is Reem Alrubaye, I am from Iraq. I received a diploma degree in interior design in 2014 from Jordan. After that, I began to seek a bachelor's degree in interior design as well, but the circumstances were the opposite of what I expected. I had to move to the United States with my family and start from scratch to achieve my dream. I never gave up and started convincing myself that everything would be better than what I planned. I sat with myself and started planning my dream again. I joined the ESL program and finished it in two years. Then, I registered for an interior design program at Oakland Community College. I will graduate next year with an associate degree, which makes me feel that I am starting to see the light in what I have dreamed of. After that, I plan to enroll in the New York School of Interior Design to get a bachelor's degree.Ultimately, for every student who feels it is hard to achieve their dreams, nothing is impossible! Struggle to reach your dream.
