Career options for students who get a degree in administration of justice include: judge, lawyer, paralegal, legal assistant, police officer, private detective, reporter, archivist, curator, planner, writer, news correspondent, and broadcast news analyst.
During her time at Norco College and Riverside City College, Maha served as the RCCD student trustee where she represented and advocated for students and relevant issues.
“RCCD and the California Community College system changed my life. The college atmosphere was fully accessible, welcoming, hope-giving, and dream-realizing for the millions of first generation, self-made, self-finding, students,” said Ibrahim.
