I was always dreaming of resuming my high studies, but there were a lot of obstacles in my way as I am a wife and responsible for a family and two young daughters need all of my time and effort and I have no time to go to the university and attending lectures but one day and by accident “as god wants to help me fulfilling my dream ” a friend told me about AIU and how it can help me fulfilling my dream. I began to search the net for AIU in order to know how I can join it and how it can help me then I get a phone call from jeff bordes who later became my counselor and offered me a great help answering all of my endless questions .
At the beginning I was afraid as how I will manage to get my degree without having a teacher, without asking questions and explanation, I was feeling lost. But by time all my fears disappeared as my advisor gave me help, answered all my questions and guided me to the sources which can help me getting the best grades.
There, is no doubt that at the beginning I found it difficult to organize my time and find the time to read, write my assignments, find the resources which can help me but AIU solved these problems as it gave me the sufficient time to read, do my assignments and to let me look for the resources I needed through it’s free library.
After finishing the courses and get ready for taking my degree, I found that my experience with AIU was great it helps me to be more independent, responsible and it also helps me to gain more confidence in my capabilities and that I can achieve more and more without the need to get away from my family and my home.
As dreams have no borders or limits, I dream now of resuming my Doctoral Degree in AIU which will also for sure will be another great experience.
