LA ORT’s Student of the Month April 2014

Meet April’s Student of the Month: Parisa Riazi.

Parisa is a student in the Accounting program at LA ORT. Her attendance is a remarkable 100%.

Along with having perfect attendance, Parisa is an A + student, with an average 97% score on her assignments and tests.

She has a true community spirit as well. When Parisa is not focusing on her own studies, she helps other students in class with their work. “Learning accounting is my goal but the most [important] aspect of being here, or my favorite part, is visiting people who have left their country and gathered here,” said Parisa.

“[They] are looking forward to a bright future. It encourages me to continue in spite of the fact that I am a newcomer and don’t know what is going on in my path.”

She’s studying and working until 7 pm everyday, so she stays busy. “In my leisure time I prefer to call my family overseas and also [enjoy] watching TV… or my favorite entertainment, composing poems.”

Her future goals include finishing the LA ORT program and landing a job in accounting.

A talented accountant and a poet? Parisa, you truly are an inspiration. Congratulations on your Student of the Month achievement. We are proud to have you at LA ORT!
