Amina Mohamed

She/Her/Hers

That one short girl you see in the halls with dimples, yep that’s me. Let me tell you a little more about myself. My name is Amina Mohamed Abdulkadir. I am a first generation college student, this is my second year at PCC. Career wise/major I’m undecided. Main goal is to be a teacher, to be able to gain knowledge and pass it on. Fun fact about myself is that I love some extra free time watching random videos on Youtube. I’m fun and outgoing and I can’t wait to work with the Multicultural Center.

Hi, my name is Angel Sanchez I am from the scorching hot city Phoenix, Arizona. I graduated from High School in May, 2018 I took a year off to work and have some more time for me and then I made the decision to come back to school to further my education. I couldn’t have made a better decision to attend Portland Community College because of all the diversity.

Isaiah Windon

He/Him/His

Hi, My name is Isaiah Windon. I am a Native American student attending Portland Community College. I’m attending college to get a better education and hope to become a middle school teacher. When growing up on the reservation I noticed that the schools weren’t the best. Mainly because of the funding, limited supplies, and low staff. I would want to go back and help the community as much as possible.
