Is there a Connection between Family Relationships and College Success? free book download (every Friday in May) For many first-generation college students (and soon to be graduates and professionals) being the first in your family can be exhausting and challenging, but the saving grace is that they may come from supportive environments. The authors of "My First in my Family" show us statistical data to complement the many stories shared on the blog. In addition to hard work and commitment, Jordan, Bridget, Joy, and Lupe also attribute their rise to the presence of loving, supportive relationships.
"My First in my Family" was an informational read! The authors' findings discuss how a parents' role and sacrifices were observed to be the motivations of first gens to push through the fatigue, doubt, and stress. This book contains stories, detailed facts, and graphs to support their description of the supportive relationships that were seen to yield college success among first gens. I recommend this book and it can be downloaded for free on each Friday in May!
