What does being a first-gen student mean to you?

Being a first-gen student means that I am breaking barriers, that I am where I need to be. It means never giving up while under so much pressure and staying true to myself always. 

Why are you excited to be a first-gen mentor?

I am so excited to be a first-gen mentor so that I can help others not feel alone. To build that relationship with my mentee and help them be as successful as they possibly can be is so exciting. I’m so excited to support and recognize them in every way I can, while watching them grow.
