Experience being first-gen

While being a first-generation student can be challenging as one pursues their education, I learned that it was also a strength I had. Everything that my parents and community taught me were instrumental to not giving up, working hard, and reminding myself that I too can accomplish the impossible.

Characteristics of first-generation students

Innovative. Inspiring. Unapologetic. Determined. Courageous. Brave.
