Meet Ahmad Hilal Abid

Ahmad Hilal Abid immigrated to the US from Afghanistan when he was 16 and started his studies at Edmonds College in the ESL program. He has since earned his AA degree and is currently working on his paralegal transfer degree, hoping to continue his education at an Ivy League college. Ahmad is active both on and off campus, serving as a student leader and starting a nonprofit, the House of Wisdom, which offers free tutoring to children and adults in English, math, science, and social studies. He was one of three state recipients of the Governor’s Student Civic Leadership Award.

Legislative Priority: Expand Opportunity for Students and Employers

Fully funding our budget requests will have real returns for students like Ahmad Hilal Abid and for the communities and employers in our area. Students will learn from competitively-paid experts who choose to work at Edmonds College rather than pursue higher paying positions with private employers or K-12 schools. Our students will train for careers in robust workforce programs, with modern equipment and learning spaces that mirror their future work environments. We will be able to expand technology to bring a college education to more people in more ways, which is especially important for working adults. And, all our students will benefit from an inclusive environment where they are valued, supported and equipped to reach their goals.
