Ajaya in Woodside, NY

Being a girl born in a developing country, I feel so proud and lucky to be the first generation to go to college and receive formal education. Due to ignorance and lack of resources my parents couldn’t afford to go to school and gained some informal education. They had to face many struggles and thus knowing the importance of education and knowledge my parents sent me to school and always encouraged me to graduate with good scores.

I am glad to be able to pursue knowledge and have such devotional parents. Love and wishes from me to all the first generation students.
