A first-generation college graduate, it's important to surround yourself with people who are going to have your back. After all, you weren't created to do this thing called life alone, so be sure that no matter where you go that you'll make it a point to build community.
Did you want to go to college? Was it something that you were excited for? Sometimes you don't go to college because you really wanted to, but because it was the best option at the time. For Sarah, she wasn’t motivated in high school but went to the one college that accepted her because she wasn't ready to start working. She soon found her drive and thrived in college. Tune in as we discuss leadership, willingness to admit when you don't know something, and not putting too much thought into what others think of you.
Has something ever helped you out or altered your life for the better? Have you ever wanted to be a part of what it was that helped you? For Marsha that thing is TRIO programs. After facing a great deal of racism growing up, Marsha is now helping her community by teaching diversity and inclusion as well as helping first-gens get to college.
