Where did you attend college?
University of California - San Diego
What was your college experience like as a first-generation college student?
I felt like a fish out of water. But I managed! Made some new friends, connected with others from my hometown, and got a job to help me achieve some balance. I also discovered classes that spoke to me and that made my experience relate to the university as a whole.
What message do you have to share with current first-generation college students?
Stick with it! It does get better.
