Mom of two a bookkeeping major at LCC
Noor Farhan is a 35-year-old bookkeeping student at LCC who enjoys physical wellness and business.
Farhan described herself as an independent person.
"I am introverted, and I enjoy the quiet," Farhan said. "I would say I am strong, independent; all while being a part-time student and a full-time mom.
"I like to exercise and read about health and a healthy lifestyle. I also enjoy keeping up to date on world events through news sources."
Farhan spoke highly of her interest in bookkeeping and office work.
"My major is bookkeeping, but I originally took an interest in political science," she said. "I chose this major since it related to my associate degree in business, and it allows me to easily get a job.
"It is a short-term certificate and I feel like I already have the knowledge of what kind of classes I'm taking. I really enjoy quiet office work and I think this is the best major to do that."
Farhan recalled choosing LCC for its educational opportunities.
"LCC had the major I was looking for and it is a great college. It has great professors and a very inviting environment. The online classes are also convenient and affordable."
Farhan said she is looking forward to starting her career after graduating LCC.
"I would love to get a bookkeeping job after I graduate from LCC," she said. "I prefer a flexible schedule, as I have two young children."
Sara Farhan, Noor's younger sister, speaks of her sister highly.
"Noor has always been an introvert, which I think influenced her choice of major," Sara said. "I am happy she is returning to college to pursue her education."
