More than 2,100 students will be receiving degrees and certificates at the Grossmont College and Cuyamaca College commencements on June 1 and 2. Here's the story of one amazing graduate.
“I worked hard to balance between studying, working and taking care of my daughter,” said Ibrahim, who is 38. “It is very challenging situation for a single mother to put all three together. I didn’t have much time to waste, and not enough time to study. So I usually would wake up at 4 a.m. to finish my homework, study for a test or to finish writing a paper.
“It is getting a lot easier for me now,” Ibrahim said.
