Education...

Education is a constant in my life... my Mommy (I will always call her that no matter how old I get, she will always be Mommy to me) always stressed the importance of education. I try to educate myself in every way and in every situation.

I ALWAYS earned the highest grades in ALL of my classes...being a very competitive person, I can't stand to lose, coming in 2nd is a loss to me. When it comes to school & learning i ALWAYS take that extra step & challenge myself.

I was fortunate to have my Father (Habibi) who was "EXTRA" religious (Islamically) so my Quranic studies began at an early age... fast forward... I became a Hafidh Of Quran (Protector Of The Quran, Memorizer of The Quran) when I was 17 I became the first & fastest American to complete in Jamia Madina-Tul-Uloom, Trinidad. On the other end I was fortunate to have my Mommy who was BIG on secular education, enjoying childhood, and developing a MAN of knowledge & character. Mommy made sure I got the necessary play time,school time & family time... but she saw I was passionate about learning so she focused on that & I excelled in ALL of my classes. to make a long story short... if she had not passed, I'm sure I would have 3 graduate degrees by now. However, NOTHING can replace the blessing of the Quran & the positive effects it has on my life & the life of others. The Quran is the biggest accomplishment of my life, PERIOD!!!

Anyway... my reason for writing this is to say: I HAVE DECIDED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL TO FURTHER MY EDUCATION!
