On January 31, 2013, we held our very 1st Google+ Hangout! (See how being the first is awesome?) Despite some technical difficulties during the Hangout, Cindy Forbes Cameron and Dominique Ramirez, from the U.S. Department of Education, gave some great tips and advice on how to make the most of your financial aid application process. Also, I’m First Blogger, Jesse Sanchez, offered some advice and words of wisdom based on his personal experiences with completing the FAFSA.

An attempt by Dominique Ramirez to play a short video of the FAFSA overview failed during the hangout. However, you can check out the video below!

All in all, the Hangout was pretty fun and informative. Be sure to be on the lookout for other monthly Google+ Hangouts from I’m First!
