Being a first generation college student
Receiving support through ACCESS made me want to go above and beyond for myself and for my community. Now I feel more motivated to give back and be an example for my peers, as well as my siblings.
“ACCESS was instrumental in helping me go to college because, as a first generation college student, I couldn’t really navigate the avenues to get there myself. But with the help of ACCESS in finding funding, scholarship opportunities and support, I was able to go to college and succeed as a first generation college student. I believe people should support the ACCESS College Foundation and continue the mission because what they give students is a blessing and often a miracle.”
