Choosing to pursue tennis or education
Choosing Missouri State from over 5,000 universities & colleges in the U.S.
Making the best of opportunities
Fatima does her best not to waste any time in her journey in the U.S. While she was a student-athlete representing the Missouri State tennis team, she also started tutoring math and science in the Bear CLAW (Center of Learning and Writing) in which she tutored students and answered their questions on various topics. She has also engaged in several associations and organizations on campus, including UNICEF and GLaM (Global Leaders & Mentors).
When Fatima first decided to come to the U.S. to study, friends and family told her she would have a good experience. She feels “good” is an understatement, and she would recommend anyone to come to Missouri State.
