Mowlid Mohammed

My name is Mowlid Mohamed. I was born in Somalia and grew up in Kenya. My whole life I dreamed of having a good education but I had a lot of financial obstacles to stay in school. I dropped out from high school in Kenya because I couldn’t pay my school fees.

When I had the chance to come to the United States, I decided to go back to school. I found out about the adult basic education program whereby I earned a High school equivalency certificate. I found a job as an Instructional Aid at the Community College District.

Adult basic education made me realize how much I can do with my life and it showed me how I can accomplish my dreams. Because of the good preparation I received, I’m going to college to become a Childcare Eligibility Specialist, and pursue a degree to become a Humanitarian Aid Worker.

Mission: San Diego Continuing Education commits to student success and community enrichment by providing accessible, equitable, and innovative quality education and support services to diverse adult learners in pursuit of lifelong learning, training, career advancement, and pathways to college.
