Student Spotlight (2016)
At 21 years of age, Timothy moved from Germany to the United States to pursue his dream of a higher education in the California educational system. He managed to overcome initial language and cultural barriers, and was able to establish a sufficient income while attending Norco College. Timothy went on to discover his passion for political science and economics and with the help of influential guidance he learned the keys to excel academically and became an honors student.
Timothy felt inclined to be actively involved on campus and the community; thus he decided to join student government, where he served as vice president. Simultaneously he was introduced to Phi Theta Kappa, where he seized the opportunity to help shape the young chapter and served as president for two terms. Timothy plans to transfer to UC Berkley to finish his undergraduate and pursue a Ph.D.
