“My life has not been an easy one. I came to America from Africa where my family was
torn apart by genocide. I feel very privileged to now be in America and to attend
CBC. I want to set an extraordinary example for many other students who want to work
hard, earn a degree and make a difference in the lives of others.”
“I chose CBC because of its unique four year nursing program. I love CBC because the
faculty and staff have the students’ best interest in mind. I know that my professors
are willing to help me and they want me to succeed. CBC also has a lot of student
involvement and activities on campus, which makes college more fun!”
