Mustafa kindly allowed us to interview him. He described what the LCC meant to him:

The LCC was an open door to this new world for me. The LCC faculty was more than teachers. They were like a family teaching me how to introduce myself: How to answer the phone, how to ask for directions, and how to adjust to the new world. Most importantly, they taught me how to think like an American, so I can build my career and my future.
