Sophomore and ready for round 2 with Emma Morris

Former client, Emma Morris took time out of her busy schedule to contact FirstPointUSA. This is what she had to say… This time last year, my American dream was beginning.

  Former FirstPointUSA client Ike Ekwueme has enjoyed great success both on the pitch and in the classroom during his time in America. He’s taken the time to write about his journey…     The journey started off as far back as my high school days in England. In high school, Math’s, English and Science were not my strongest courses. I was in set 3 for these courses which was equivalent to the lowest rank. I wasn’t a bad student, but I had a little test anxiety, I was afraid of the unknown. But one day, I said to myself, enough is enough. I refused to be satisfied with a low position. So I set myself some goals. I said, … Continued
