What are her thoughts on college? "I never knew college would be this amazing. If they had told me I'd be talking about vaginas, discussing theories, watching films, learning Arabic, and writing, I wouldn't have believed them. Being here, doing this, is absolutely elating."
Amina feels that Albany professors carry the institution on their backs. "The professors here are amazing. Always willing to listen, approachable, and definitely dependable."
