We want to hear your first-generation college story!

Your story can inspire another first-generation student or parent! So please, answer one of these two questions:


What does it mean to you to be a first-generation student or parent?


What was the toughest obstacle that you and your family overcame to attend college? How did you do it?

Or just write from the heart and share your own narrative or video story.
Please use this form to submit your story, photo or video. The content will be reviewed and shared on this website and in social media channels.
