He was raised there by his family until the age of eighteen, where we was sent off to Princeton in the United States of America. Having to move to America was of course a drastic change for him considering he was of only two Pakistanis in his entering class. “I have access to this beautiful campus, I thought, to professors who are titans in their fields and fellow students who are philosopher-kings in the making” (Hamid, p. 3). At first the experience in the U.S. was more of a dream than a reality to Changez, because this was an opportunity that only so many international students would get to experience. He was top of his class in Pakistan and a good enough soccer player to play at Princeton and only with such credibility could one even dream of coming to the U.S. At Princeton, Changez began trying to fit in culturally with other students there.
When he was in college he found out about vector marketing and like most students now, he launched and did really well with the company. He eventually worked himself through the tough but very rewarding road to become a district manager. Josh is a great manager due to his optimistic outlook. He always says “Always be at your best.” There is nothing that gets to this man. Last summer we had the biggest
The action unfolding in the café helps the reader to evaluate the complex cultural tensions and fears of the post 9/11 world. By playing on the suspicion of the reader, Mohsin Hamid attempts to explore imbedded feelings toward both America and the Middle East post 9/11 through a reversal of the usual relationship, providing a muted American character, and an expressive Pakistani one. As soon as the novel begins we are presented with a product of Western prejudices “Do not be frightened of my beard, I am a lover of America” and as the character of Changez begins to introduce himself, we see the convention of the one dimensional Islamic man constructed by the American media slip away. Changez is articulate, polite, and as he reveals, exclusively educated, attending Princeton, and holding modern values “yes, the women, too- are working professionals”. Yet, the lack of information about the “purpose” and “mission” of these two characters takes grip of the narrative and through allusions “not unlike
Luis’ student-teaching experience came as a realization to him not only in a positive way but in a negative way as well. Now that he finished his degree and credential work he least expected to be presented with a full-time teaching position in his hometown starting at $29,000 a year. As he least expected to allow his friend to talk him into a management trainee position at Sunset National it was another surprise to find that the large bank chose him 15 other candidates. This opportunity would give him a slightly better pay starting at $38,000 a year. In addition to his pay at the bank when he’s promoted to loan officer he would be receiving an additional $3,000 raise.

25 October 2011 “King Gimp” As I watched the documentary on Dan I encountered two feelings, amazed and happy. I never saw anything in all my twenty five years of living more touching than his story. It’s amazing to see a young man with this disability actually live a normal live and attend college and graduate. The thought of me finishing college seems unreal but to know that Dan can do it really makes me want to push myself in the hardest way because I don’t have any excuse as to why I can’t graduate just like Dan did. Watching his story made me so happy because he was a fighter and he didn’t give up.

College Connect has done great things for my family and I; it motivated me to apply for scholarships, inspired me to do well in school and most importantly, to dream big. As a first generation student, my parents and I had no idea about SAT’s, college applications, scholarships, etc.I had no idea what the whole process was like. However, due to the support and help that College Connect offered me, I have successfully been accepted to a four year college. For me the most helpful thing about College Connect is the fact that students can go into their office whenever a question arises. Everyone at College Connect is always supportive towards whatever the student is concerned about.
