Edward Collaku
Student - Al Huda University

“I believe strongly in education, a trait that has been passed down by my father, who ironically has had only five years of schooling. He stressed in getting that “piece of paper” (diploma).

I am the second person behind my older cousin in getting a degree since our family can remember and I have a strong desire to learn more, challenge myself and to teach others.”
