  • As an international student in the U.S., financial support is one of the many challenges students like myself will encounter as they pursue their career goals. I am truly appreciative of all the support and assistance Anjuman has given me and I encourage you to continue to support them for all their outstanding effort in the professional and personal development of our youth.
