I’m originally from Lagos, Nigeria, now I live in Chicago. One of the reasons I chose Malcolm X College was because its healthcare reputation and its partnership with UIC. The opportunity to pursue an associate and bachelor’s degree at the same time through the Malcolm X/UIC Nursing dual admission pathway was very attractive to me. Attending a community college was also a smart financial decision for me.

I appreciated the collaboration between both schools as it made the transition seamless. I am grateful to both Malcolm X and UIC for helping me reach my goals. I am currently employed as a psychiatric ICU nurse at St. Joseph Hospital while pursuing my Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN).
