Arapahoe Pinnacle

Rashid Mohamed
Maybe it was the royal purple that evokes sentiments of virtue, or perhaps the encouraging motto: 'Move Mountains', that initially attracted me to ACC. Ultimately I am pleased to be enrolled here, where students from all walks of life can truly appreciate a wonderful array of courses taught by highly qualified instructors who have a keen passion for teaching. --  Rashid Mohamed first came to Colorado on a short business trip 15 years ago and knew he'd be back. Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Rashid has roots in the Horn of Africa and calls the world his home.  His insatiable interest in history and geography led him to pursue a B.A. in Political Science from Ohio University, after which he embarked upon a career with the United Nations. Global politics play a big role in Rashid's life. He loves to stay abreast of current issues and analyze their impact on society, through his writing. Rashid decided to go back to school to reactivate his grey cells and essentially improve upon his writing skills.  Currently enrolled at ACC with a major in Journalism, Rashid is Managing Editor of the Pinnacle.
