Having completed Middle School and High School with the IOK family, Yusuf – an all-star debater – recalls his most memorable time with IOK being the opportunity to compete in and win debate tournaments against long-time rivals, the Pegasus School. He also participated in the Muslim Inter-Scholastic Tournament where IOK school brought home the Most Valuable Team trophy. Now a student at Mt. SAC, Yusuf attributes his teachers at IOK for his success and acceptance into UCI. “IOK really taught me the value of friendship and maintaining strong relationships among peers. It taught me to value others and to cherish the time we have with each other.”
