十大赌博靠谱网站平台 & 特性


Money is important to Steve Deeloo. 真正重要的. It’s a value the Northeastern Illinois University senior developed growing up with his family in Iraq with little to get by. And then living for nine years together as refugees in Jordan.

For Deeloo, money isn’t about being rich—it’s about freedom and survival.

Now on the verge of becoming the first member of his family to earn a college degree, Deeloo is proud of what his education can do for his family and his community.

“I have learned that helping people save money or make money is the best thing I can do for them,”迪鲁说, who moved to the United States with his mother and two sisters in 2009 before his father came to join them a year later. “At church, people will ask me for advice on securing a mortgage or building credit. It gives me a great feeling. It makes me feel really proud of myself that I’m able to help in the slightest.”

While Deeloo is on track to earn his Bachelor of Science in Finance later this year, he already is moving up in the business world.

Recently promoted into a private client banker position with JP Morgan Chase Bank, Deeloo introduces clients to bank products and benefits, and refers clients to private and business banking specialists. 今年晚些时候, he plans to sit for the CFA Level I exam on his career path to becoming a financial analyst.

“Every week he helped other students in class to better understand the materials and where they could find information in the text,” Management Instructor Patrick Delaney said. “Steve is goal-oriented both in his career potential and in his immediate certification efforts to become a Certified Financial Analyst. He is a serious student and represents the school well.”

Deeloo arrived at Northeastern in 2013 after graduating from 马瑟高中 在芝加哥. In one of his first classes, he befriended a Marketing major named Brian.

“Outside of this school we didn’t have much in common, but now he has grown to become a dear friend of mine,迪卢说, noting that his own native language is Assyrian 阿拉伯语 while Brian speaks 英语 and 西班牙语. “Northeastern introduced me to people who have helped me. Brian has been pushing me since the day I met him, whether it was scheduling or competing with me on grades.”

That mix of students was a major part of what attracted Deeloo to the University.

“What I really love about Northeastern is the diversity, this common struggle that most students have gone through,迪卢说. “You can easily relate to other students. The ones you can’t relate to, you can learn from.”

Deeloo’s “zeal for learning” was an inspiration to 英语 语言 Program Instructor Christine Swanson and the other students in the two classes they shared together.

“Steve was a model student, 老实说, I especially looked forward to teaching these two courses because his interest in learning was contagious,斯旺森说. “Steve proved to be an empathetic listener and an important contributor to class discussions and group activities. I found Steve’s greatest strengths to be his willingness to listen to others, to analyze every concept with a critical eye, and to jump on every opportunity to apply what he was learning.”

As much as his instructors appreciate Deeloo’s contributions to class, he equally appreciates what he takes away from those classes.

“I couldn’t have asked for anything better or been any more proud of my school,迪卢说. “The fact that Northeastern supports the community, it helps the community do better, it gives them the chance they need. You can’t put a price on that.”
