Updates from Johnson County Community College: One student’s journey from JCCC to business owner and mentor

Nabil Cherif, former JCCC student, founded Bridging the Gap Interpreting and is now working with the Career Development Center to assist other students.

After years of traveling the world, Nabil Cherif settled in Kansas City in 2000 to attend JCCC. The Tunisia native explored multiple subjects, from information technology to political science and even culinary classes. His goal was to earn an associate of arts degree while becoming more comfortable with English, French and Arabic languages.

“I was on a journey of exploring,” said Cherif. “Education, applied knowledge and personal growth are guiding forces in my life.”
