About Me

Hi everyone! This is my first blog ever. Here is some basic information about me.

My name is Rano Mukhamedova. I’m 23. I was born and raised in Tashkent, capital of Uzbekistan. When I was 18 my family and I immigrated to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. While I lived there I attended business school and worked as an assistant of the accountant in a company of currency exchange and wire transfers. It was my 5th semester when the Ministry of Higher Education of UAE revoked accreditation of my university. As I was informed, the reason of that was that school failed to follow the rules and regulations required for accreditation. I was offered to pay double of what I had paid before in order to get an accredited degree, but I couldn’t trust this institute anymore. Therefore, I decided to get my degree in the country that is most famous for its education system. After a couple of weeks of research I decided to come to California to obtain a degree in accounting. I chose USA because its CPA (Certificate of Public Accountant) program is recognized worldwide. It is very important in a global economy to have a degree that is recognized worldwide. I applied to Glendale Community College and came here as an international student in August of 2011.This year I transferred to Valley College just to try studying in a different school. This is my first semester here. I enjoy being a student in the USA. I think the method of teaching professors use here is very contemporary and productive. My goal for now is to transfer to USC or CSUN in order to get my bachelor degree in accounting…

    That is what i want to do too! I want to be a CPA. I am transferring to CSUN this Fall and if all goes well ill receive my bachelors from there. It is always nice hearing peoples stories and how they came to be where they are now. I am happy that you choose California to come get your degree. I love this state i feel like it has so much diversity.

    You are in my Chapter 12 group along with Sandra T. I am really looking forward to working with you and getting to know you a little more. I have heard a lot of good things about Dubai. I had a friend who was in the military who was stationed out there. She said it was beautiful but very expensive. I wish you luck on your path to success:)

      Hi Sandra,
      It is really nice to hear that you’ve chosen CPA too, because I think very few people like accounting major nowadays. However, it is better for us —> less competition 😉
      And about Cali, I love it too. Even though people from my country live in NY, I didn’t like it there. I think California is a paradise on Earth.

    From reading your blog, it seems that you have developed an independent behavior that grows inside of all of us. Living on your own far from your family gives you a lot of experiences toward organizing your life. Since it is up to you and no one else to go to school, clean your room, wash your clothes, and organize your expenses, it is predictable that you will have a good and strong meaning of responsibility. Being independent and responsible will help you get through life every goal you want to achieve.

    I agree that spending time away in a different country can be a really interesting and unforgettable experience, but at the same time it has a very positive important effects on one’s life. I can see that the main result would be learning how to accept another type of society and culture into your daily life. Since you are living in a place with different customs and traditions from yours, you have to be able to develop yourself in unknown conditions. This means making new friends, learning other points of view, accepting different opinions and values, and seizing every opportunity you have to go to new places. Therefore, you’ll be able to achieve true knowledge. Suggesting to change your mind totally or to be square minded would be foolish; the best thing to do would be to stick to your most important values and, according to them, change those that you believe could be improved.
    Good luck on your journey and perhaps we would meet again because I have also decided to become a CPA.

    It’s really cool that you had a chance to live in different countries and get to learn cultures and people. This makes you a much dynamic person with wider views on life. Speaking different languages also creates more opportunities in accounting world. The knowledge of diverse cultures and mentalities is a strong asset in todays business world. Plus, your ability to adapt is the key factor in todays international merging.

    It suck that you didn’t get ecreditation for time and effort you spent in previouse school. But to look at it from a positive perspective, it became the reason for coming to US, which I belive is a smart choice. Your career choice is good. Accounting has a future but it’s a very competitive field. Well, that where your advantages as person with understanding of culture and languages will kick in. Good luck and I really hope that you accomplish everything you planned.

    Your English is really good for being a Foreign student. That sounds terrible that your school was revoked accreditation. I’d be mighty pissed if that happen to the school i went to. That’s unfair to the student who put the time and effort into their classes to earn a high grade. The good thing is that you are able to take the knowledge you learned with you.

    I also plan on transferring to CSUN after the fall semester. I’m planning on throw in an application to USC but i heard that their expenses are ridiculous. CSUN is local and i heard that the education they give their students is great. Deciding the college you wish to go to is always a though choice but we all have to make it.

    That’s crazy 5 semesters in and they discredited your school. i think that you will enjoy the U.S the diversity here in L.A is great and I love to see all the different and beautiful cultures the U.S has in it. That is what i believe makes this country so great and i am happy to see you are enjoying it as well.

    I am planning on transferring to CSUN as well so who know i may see you there. I hope you do well in all your future endeavors.I also like how you brought to light how important degrees are from CSUN because it is accepted on a global level.

    Wow! I think it’s great that you experienced life, outside the USA. Being culturally exposed and knowing different languages are great skills to bring into this country.

    Despite the bad news, I know that moment for you made you stronger. Setbacks and obstacles are there to test us. Maybe you would have not decided to come to the US had that not happened? Opportunities come and its great to see you made the move happen.

    I hope your transition in California has gone well. I’ve met a lot of local people who have not left this state, or town. You (and those who travelled) have an advantage in the job market. I think you should mention that in job interviews. Being culturally aware in business is a huge trait/skill to have.

    I wish you the best of luck on pursuing the CPA! USC and CSUN are good schools and are well-known in the United States. I’m familiar with those colleges, since both my siblings are alumni’s from both.

    Very interesting journey you have and as I always like to say, “what ever happens, happens for a reason and for the best”. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to spend so much time, money and effort at a university, and at the end to have nothing on your hands and not be accredited for all that you have studied. However, on the other hand, the knowledge, experience and memories are only things that no one can take away from us.
    You made a very smart decision to come to United States to get your CPA. Once you have that degree in your hands, you can live anywhere in the world. Though I’m sure that after living in US for several more years, you will not want to move anywhere. For me it was hard to adjust for the first 3 to 4 years, but now I love America, and it is my home.

    Wow! You have had quite an adventure, moving around. You had the opportunity to live among different cultures and experience different lifestyles that have enriched you personally and taught you how to communicate with different people. Luckily in California there is a great diverse population so there is not much need to travel across seas to people of different cultures. Dubai must be beautiful, the picture you posted of Dubai I saw the hotel in the background. I’m aware the hotel is one of the top starred, it must be great to have been there.

    You traveling experience will definitely enrich your life and business communications and hopefully convince you to do international business.
