“Graduating early wasn’t necessarily the goal,” Mohamed said. “It was more of just challenging myself.”

Now his message to others is to keep moving forward. 

“If you want to do something, go for it, and I promise you’ll find a time and you’ll find the motivation and the support system that you need,” Mohamed said. “All it takes is deciding you want to do something.”
