When I became the first graduate of BIHE whose degree was accepted by 5 major universities in the US, I felt a special sense of pride! Of course I was happy that years of my hard work had paid off, but more importantly, I was elated that a BIHE degree was recognized by those prestigious universities. It was important for me to give hope to my fellow students in Iran that our efforts and those of our selfless professors and administrators were not in vain.
With a BA in Psychology from BIHE, I continued my graduate studies in social work. Today, I am the executive director at Community Legal Services and Counseling Center and adjunct faculty at Boston University School of Social work.
