On 6/6/19, I received my acceptance letter to Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) in Pennsylvania. Now, I’m in the process of trying to acquire my F-1 Visa. Once I get my Visa, I’ll make plans to come to the US. I expect to start my studies either January, 2020 or August, 2020. Why HACC? 1.The Computer Science program at HACC is robust, with a viable transfer option to Penn State (Harrisburg), my dream school, with no credit loss. 2.HACC has a large international student body with more than 200 students from 60 different nations. It will be exciting to belong to such a diverse community. 3.HACC costs less than a 4-yr college. Their work-study program will allow me to gain useful experience & earn some money. My acceptance letter is just the 1st step to achieve my dream. I’ll seize each chance to learn from courses & the people I meet. Maybe others will learn from me, too. By listening & talking to others, empathy amid people will follow. Then, we can tear down walls & build a better world.
