Going to college means a lot to me because taking the next step in your education is important and it’s just one step closer to helping somebody live their life or helping somebody reach their goals. My family is so proud and happy that i put forth the effort in school to get that academic scholarship so that i am able to further my education and be a good role model to my younger siblings.

Being a first generation college student is a big deal because you can be the first to say wow I actually went to college and I graduated. You will also feel good about yourself and you will be able to do something that you love to do without any complaints. That’s why it’s important to be a first generation kid and I am proud to be a first generation kid.
