Abu Koroma

My name is Abu Koroma and I am a student of Northern Essex Community College. I am in the business transfer program at NECC and this will be my first time as a student ambassador. I was once helped by a student ambassador, and now I am an ambassador myself. I like the idea of helping others who are struggling with work or issues in school and making them s easier so they don’t have to continue to struggle. I was once at that point and understand the feeling. I am ready to embrace the challenge of being an ambassador and helping my fellow students through their college journey and problems on campus.

Daniel Luddy

My name is Daniel Luddy, a guest student at Northern Essex Community College. After completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at UMass Lowell, I decided to come to NECC to expand my skillset into art and writing. It’s no surprise then that I have a thing for the arts and writing, and know how to write my way through exam period. The transition to online learning hasn’t been easy, and I know for many NECC students, it has never been easy to begin with. Together, I believe we can sit down to formulate the right plan to help you navigate through both college life and daily life, as a student should never have to sacrifice one for the other. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you.
