“Being a first generation college student from a moderate income family, I’m well aware well aware of the hurdles students like me can face and the resilience one must have in adversity. However, besides the challenges that come with college there is also opportunity such as internships, connections with professors and peers, student involvement, and once your degree is completed a meaningful and fulfilling career.
