“Before I came here, I didn’t know how to make choices for myself. I just followed what other people were doing just to be a good student in other people’s eyes. But through my years here at UNH I learned to just be myself and do what I want to do. I learned to be the best version of myself.”

UNH is a great environment for you to immerse yourself in the culture and the language. I have some classes where I’m the only international student, so I’m almost forced to speak English, forced out of my comfort zone. I really like that.

“I really like the atmosphere here. People cherish your ideas, respect your ideas, and really encourage you to realize your ideas. If you’ve got an idea and it’s practical, you can always find a way to realize it. They really encourage you.”

“Growing up, I saw what my dad did — he’s an electrical engineer — so I grew up with the mindset, ‘OK, I’m going to be an engineer.’ In Iran, you grow up either to be an engineer or doctor because of the bright future they have. A lot of people go into that because of the pressure from outside, but I grew up loving it.”
