Thanks for visiting my blog, and welcome! My name is Renee` Ahmad. I am a United States Air Force veteran, and I am currently a graduate student of CUNY Lehman College’s TQP MATH-UP program, Cohort #2. I began my journey at Lehman as an ADP candidate and earned my bachelors degree in Linguistics with a minor concentration in Early Childhood Education. As a participant in the MATH-UP program, my area of study is in grades 1-5 with an interest in mathematics. Originally, I am from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and have spent much of my life abroad living in Europe. I am also a mother of three children attending elementary and middle school grades. In addition to full-time graduate study and motherhood, I am a freelance photographer and occasional cupcake maven.
