I attended MIA for five years and the best word that I can use to describe it is holistic. At MIA not only did I get a great academic education but I also got an amazing religious education. The teachers at the school go out of their way to help students whether it may be academically or spiritually. They care for the students and want what is best for them. MIA taught me how to be confident with my Muslim identity. What I learned about MIA after graduating is that even after you leave you still have a family there who cares for you.
