To all students, students who can’t do internships because they’re unpaid, students who experience hunger in our campuses, students who feel like you don’t belong, lack the connections, the sophistication. We see you, many of use were you. You’re heroes. Keep doing it.

My dad didn't finish high school. My mom didn't go to college. And I was just asked to guest lecture at my alma mater, . Having all the feels right now. 🤗

Taking time off to find yourself & rethink your journey doesn’t make you weak. Remember: your path doesn’t have to be linear; you should never compare yourself to others; you can reach out to mentors; you must keep your dreams alive.

I constantly feel out of place because the vast majority of my peers come from academic backgrounds. I’m a student whose mother grew up on a farm ... my classmate’s parents looked at me like I was an alien when I mentioned my parents didn’t do college

Y’all the look on my parents’s face when I showed them my cubicle at school with my name. The work and the struggle will always be worth it just to see that look.

When you’re , you move through the world of opportunity in a liminal state: at all points, your decisions have the chance to impact generations you’ll never know and shift the normative state of your family. The weight of such is intangible, and thus, hard to explain.

Just discovered the hashtag for and added it to my profile. It's so important to self-identify, as first gen students desperately need mentors, and it's not always obvious which faculty members to turn to.

Day8 excerpt: I have been continually fascinated with how folks live their everyday lives, through everyday experiences, and how they express these lived experiences though belonging and even more so by existing.

My parents have no idea what I'm doing. They were disappointed in me for going for a Master's, they are utterly bemused by the PhD. My aunt told me I thought I was better than everyone else. My Grandmother told me this week I was wasting my life 🤷‍♀️

I think I felt this way because it was such a surreal moment. For me, a kid without any role models for the path I followed up til now, it was definitely a "whoa" moment.

students applying for college: 1. Look for colleges with offices for FG-Low Income, get guidance 2. Attend their free programs to help you & parents navigate the system 3. Also Consider private schools: they might offer you grants/ funding.Ask questions, you are great!

This is a (standard) and shitty thing to do to our students. I got through this period only because my husband has a job that could cover us. Without him I would have been entirely on my own, as many don't have family support.
