What has your experience as a 1st generation or low income student been like?
It feels like a dream to be able to do the things my parents couldn't do. I'm constantly learning what it means to be a first-generation college student from faculty and staff, close friends, colleagues, and so on. I can't wait to see what is to come!

Top tips for students:
I highly recommend trying everything you are interested in (even if it's a slight interest). There were so many times that I swayed away from something cool and exciting because I was afraid of failing, of rejection, of embarrassment. Just try it out. You never know what you might find :)
