She also added that the infrastructure was a lot more different in America.
Fatim chose to come to Snow College because of the small class sizes and its affordability. Some of her friends from High school were at Snow so she thought it would be a great experience to attend college with old friends. Some of her hobbies include basketball, volleyball, shopping and doing homework.
