CICS is extremely excited to announce that we have our own 2022 Posse Scholar at CICS Northtown Academy, Ahmed Patel. Ahmed recently shared his excitement for this honor and credits his strong support system during this time.

So, what's next for Ahmed? Ahmed's post-graduate plan is to attend a 4-year university and pursue a master's degree in Computer Science. "One day, I hope to work for a high-tech company like Google, Apple, or Microsoft. The reputation for these companies are undeniable, so it would be a huge goal of mine to work for them one day," says Ahmed. Ahmed wanted to become a Possee Scholar because he saw the degree of young students the organization has inspired and assisted in their journey to success. He also wanted to become one of those students so that he can help his family one day. During this exciting time, there has been a lot of support in place for Ahmed, but he would like to give a special shout-out to his family, friends, and Posse Organization for the help they gave him through this process, it wouldn't have been possible without them.

Congratulations again, Ahmed! We know that your future is bright and we can't wait to see you soar to all that awaits you.
