Q&A With TRIO Alum Afeez

Get to know a few of NHCC's past and present TRIO members. Introducing, Afeez Sodeinde!

To start off, could you tell us a little bit about your background?

I was born and grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. I moved to Minnesota in the summer of 2015 and started classes at North Hennepin in the fall. I chose to attend North Hennepin, because I thought a community college would be a good way to start higher education while I was still trying to get used to a new country.

What brought you to NHCC for college?

I graduated from Armstrong High School in 2008 and my plan was to attend a four-year university, but unfortunately at that time I could not afford it. Therefore, I looked into community colleges and chose NHCC because of its diversity, small campus and classroom size, and it was close to home.

How did NHCC prepare you for your career?

Well that’s just what 2016 computer science graduate Anh Duong did. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Vietnam, Duong wanted to pursue more education and a career in the United States. Her first stop was North Hennepin Community College. After a campus visit and meeting with a counselor, Duong says, “it was the right place for me.”
