Dear First Gen,
I will be introducing a series entitled Your Take: First Gen Encounters!
You will hear first-generation professionals from various backgrounds talk about their challenges and successes. One or two first gens will be spotlighted every month until the end of the year. For me, it helped to know that other people with my background overcame their obstacles and reached their goals. I remember many days and nights where it was easier to give up, but a person’s story of near defeat popped in my head and so I chose to continue in my fight to graduate or applying to jobs. You are not alone in this journey because many others have chartered the same waters and this blog is here for you to see that there are ways to skip those difficult moments or meet them head on with little frustration.
The featured first gens rose and so will you!
Tell me: Who motivated you to stay on track?
