Mentor first-generation students that want to go to college.

Major: Political Science

Project: I would like to work with first-generation college students who want to go to college. I would like to mentor these students and help them obtain a higher education.

Inspiration: I am a first-generation college student. I come from an immigrant family and I knew I had to find my own resources to obtain a higher education. The process was very difficult and I know other students are in the same shoes I am and I want to support them.

Future Plans: I hope to increase diversity on campuses and have more first-generation students obtain a college degree.
