Feature: Mubarak Haruna - Men's Soccer

Mubarak Haruna

My name is Mubarak Haruna and I am an international student from Nigeria. I am a first-year student athlete at Merritt College. I am majoring in Computer Programming and also the Captain of Merritt College’s Men’s soccer team. 

I see Merritt as a hub to learn new things, experience new adventures, to think about the world as my playground and challenge myself to make newfangled discoveries. Studying at Merritt has given me the right tools to achieve my dreams of becoming a computer scientist and make a positive impact in the world at large.

Above all, my ultimate dream is to use my knowledge and talents to help people, especially the less privileged and give them hope for a better life. I want to be a role model to others and make a positive difference in the world.
