Being the first to attend college, you are the difference, and you worked hard during your past years in school. You are able to create a path which you continuously progress on, and know that you were able to give it your all.

Having come from a minority family, many believed that I would not make it to college, but I knew that I had to prove them wrong. Getting accepted into college is the best feeling, knowing that because of your hard work, you were able to conquer the people who said that you would never make it.

College will be a beneficial time in your life, knowing that you were able to demonstrate your work as well as determination in your education. It is an opportunity to make something out of your life, and being the first in your family to attend, is an honor.
