College is a chance to have better opportunities in life. First generations should know that having the option to go to college is an opportunity that their grandparents or parents may not have had. In addition, college can give one the credibility and requirements for certain business endeavors, opportunities, and careers.
Therefore, my advice to first generations is to take from this and to not take a chance to go to college for granted because many do not have the option to, due to many real world issues. First generations should take college seriously and put in the work in order to succeed. If they do not, then it will show in the long run. I know this because my parents and grandparents were not able to attend college for financial reasons and the stories of hardships they had to work through in life without a college diploma.
