 you attend college?

I like to describe my college experience as an emotional rollercoaster ride. There were moments where things were great and I felt that I had a strong community to support me. But there were also moments of challenge in which I struggled to navigate through tough situations. College is an amazing experiences, but it comes with its' own set of challenges.

There will be inevitable moments of challenge and struggle. You will come to question who you are, and if you deserve to be in college. YOU DO! NEVER FORGET IT! My advice to other generation students is this: find your community and stay with them. They will help be there to support through this journey.
