Low Income and First Generation Student
Coming from a low-income first-generation to college, it has been difficult. Difficulty financially and academically. I think the biggest challenge is not sure of what route to take and especially how to get there.
Luckily, I was introduced with TRIO Upward Bound. They have made a huge impact on my life to direct me to where I am now. I am thankful for them more than anything! TRIO has surrounded me with other students whom I have common personalities with.
To gather information for this digital story, I will go back to TRIO UB and interview their current students about what they think about the program itself, how it has impact them, what life was like before joining the program and how they go about using the resources UB provides.
