The Governors State University Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service is proud to welcome it’s newest member, VISTA Rima Nimri. Rima joins us from Arab-American Family Services. We look forward to her time here and are excited for all the new programming and events Rima’s work will allow us to take on!
Here’s what Rima has to say about herself:
“My name is Rima Nimri. I graduated with a major in Communications at UIC. I love life, like really love life for the many things it has to offer and the many experiences that it gives me which is why I tend to believe that I will be living long unless I get into a car accident. Stress is not in my dictionary, never experienced it unless I am driving. If you are ever riding with me, assume that it might be your last day to live.
I decided to be on the mission of VISTA in giving to my community with my language skills. I speak Arabic, so I applied to Arab American Family Services. I wanted to expand on my experience and give more in my community so I requested to transfer to Governors State. After I complete my VISTA service I might be a VISTA again; I am going on a journey with life to where ever it takes me with its variety of options.”
