Arch Scholar 易卜拉欣RWAN '22: "Take Advantage 的 Every Opportunity"

rwan-ibrahim.jpg"Go for it. Do your best. If you make mistakes, that's OK. Grow from them." That is the message 易卜拉欣RWAN '22 (left) has heard from her parents, immigrants from Sudan, her entire life.

And it was the response they gave when Ibrahim showed them her invitation to join the Bio&ChemExcel program after she was accepted by Northwestern last year.

“I know that if they could go to college here, they would be better able to get what they want in life. So my dad is especially passionate about encouraging me. The second he saw the Bio&ChemEXCEL flyer, he said, ‘Apply for it. Just take advantage 的 every opportunity.’”

For Ibrahim, that’s medical school. And the Bio&Chem­EXCEL program was explicit about teaching the help-seeking skills that she will need to pursue that dream.

“After getting that little piece 的 help, you’d feel better about yourself and that you were getting to the level that you needed to be at.”

Today, Ibrahim is majoring in neuroscience and planning to become a mentor to future Bio&ChemEXCEL students. “I’m still working at it, but I definitely wouldn’t be as comfortable as I am now about going to 的fice hours or getting advice from a mentor or trying to become better without the preparation I got from the program,” Ibrahim said. “We learned to always ask for help, because help will be given. I’m excited to become a mentor myself and to give back in that way.”
