My true birth name is Arshan Sheedh Ashraf. When I came to this country at the age of 2. The American government switched my name with my father’s name on my birth of certificate. I really dont understand how this happened but the result was the name Gulam Arshan Sheedh. The name that might appear on the registrar sometimes. But I digress, besides my name there is more to me. Such that I believe I’m a being of happiness. I always had an optimistic outlook on life. It would take a lot to make me sad or to hurt me. I will always bounce back like a reed after a hurricane.
One of my main concerns coming into Baruch was whether or not,the rumor of Baruch being anti social true. Well so far into the school year I have met a lot of people. People that I immediately connected to. So Baruch is definitely not anti social in my opinion. Another concern coming into college was mainly a mental problem of my own. I was worried I wasn’t ready for college. That I would procrastinate and fool around like I did in high school. However since Day one, I knew I was ready. My study habits changed. I know this because I go to the library almost everyday with my study group to get my work done. My final concern coming into Baruch was that if I was going to have any fun at all in this school. Just like the previous two concerns, this was quickly dispelled. I have been having a really fun experience so far. I have really enjoyed my first month of college.
