What do you love about MPA?
MPA is one big group of people, striving for the same goal: to make this world a better place. All of us come from different backgrounds, different families, and different religions yet we all work together to help one another. I believe the soul of MPA is embedded within the students, teachers, and administration. The reason I love MPA is because the people.
How are you encouraged to dream big and do right at MPA?
MPA constantly reminds us that while we are fortunate enough to receive a wonderful education, we have to constantly check ourselves. We are developing as a society, and I believe MPA students are on the front lines of this. We stand up for what we believe, we do what we preach, and most of all we listen to our peers. MPA gives us the motivation and ability to do what we want.
What would you tell a family considering MPA?
That MPA will change the way you view the world. While MPA might be a school, it is also a journey. Each class is made to expose you to another perspective and each curriculum is taught to better your ability to succeed in life. MPA is here to help you grow into a global citizen.
In what ways has MPA prepared you for life?
I have been prepared academically by all the amazing classes and I have become a global citizen by debating many ideas.
What do you dream for yourself in 20 years?
While I don’t fully know what I want to be, I do know I want to be helping people. Meaning, I might want to become a doctor or a lawyer.
