ADora in Chicago, IL

Hello Everyone! My name is ADora and I am a first generation student! My oldest brother didn’t go to college, my second oldest brother didn’t even finish high school. And then there’s me. After my heart surgery I second guessed going to college, a university at that, because I didn’t feel like I was capable of getting that far. After my dad was put into a nursing home I doubted myself because I didn’t think I could afford it and to this day it still crosses my mind.

Now I plan on going to Clark Atlanta University. I can say I’m a bit nervous because I don’t know what to expect, what’s next or the real deal of how college works because my family hasn’t been there to give me pointers. I do come from a low income family but I’m determined that I will do everything in my soul to accomplish the obstacles that are bound to stand in my way so I can become a 2017 graduate!
