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.

Luis Raudales

My name is Luis Raudales, I am Honduran, and I speak English and Spanish. I am about to start my third semester in the Liberal Arts program, Writing Option.  Whenever I have found myself in an unfamiliar situation I have always reach out for help.  Fortunately, there has always been someone to guide me, and facilitate the accomplishment of my goal. Over time, I also had the opportunity to help other people who needed some kind of guidance and thus I discovered how rewarding it is for me to provide my help to others.

I also work specifically with our ESL students at NECC.
