Najeeb’s Message to Supporters:
I am truly blessed to have been one of the recipients for an ISF scholarship. ISF and MCA have partnered up in such a way that Muslims can really become positive contributors to social justice and social welfare issues our country is facing. I want to thank ISF and MCA for allowing me to be part of such a great endeavor and I hope that it continues to expand, encouraging Muslims to enter these important fields of study and work.
Najeeb graduated in 2014 and is currently employed as a Senior Human Services Analyst at Santa Cruz County Human Services Department.
