College of Business & Economics

Zobaria Ashraf

“Higher education was my lifelong dream, but this was a near-impossible dream for me since I am not a regular student. I am married with four kids. In my culture, it is very unusual for a woman with kids to pursue a career. So, I had no path to a career before enrolling at Towson University. Now, I am so proud of myself that I am able to obtain this degree and I am certain it will give hope to other women like me that dreams can come true.”

Ashraf is graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
