What does being a first-generation college student mean to you?
To me, being a first-generation college student is breaking the family norms and achieving new obstacles.
What obstacles have you faced in this context?
I have faced guilt for leaving the city and my family.
What advice do you have for other first-generation students?
My advice would be to go out there and talk to people, whether that be professors, faculty, or students, and advocate for yourself.
