Columbia and Motherhood
Sadia Huq, Alum
School of General Studies 2004

I am the only college-degree holder in my family. Having battled the odds at an early age, I broke away from traditions and customs and managed to get into one of the best institutions in the world. Columbia has greatly contributed to the person I am today. I gave birth to my two daughters when still studying here; amidst the gruelling exams and work load, I knew it was all worth it. Today I am both proud and humbled by my experience at Columbia. It was a privilege to be here.
