Colorado State University - 2020



Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges but has also helped me realize the value of a college education. I am a first generation college student who was born and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I moved to the United States six years ago. I did not know how to speak English and I absolutely did not think that I will be attending college one day. My Puksta project is to work with immigrant students to present them with options after high school.
