Student Spotlight - Neema Mwithiga

My name is Neema Mwithiga and I am aspiring to be a lawyer. As of right now, I'm still deciding on what I’d like to major in for my bachelor's degree. While taking my classes at Collin, I have very high expectations for myself. I’m working on time management to acquire my goal of getting all A’s and the occasional B if I’m being realistic. I’d like to think I excel in my organization skills, but I need to work on my tendencies to procrastinate. In the few weeks that I have been in college, I have already started to see procrastination become a problem. When I'm not working or in school, I enjoy reading, working out, watching crime series and hanging out with friends.
