What does being a First-Generation College Graduate mean to you?
It means perseverance, strength, & an immense amount of resiliency that not only I, but my entire family possesses. Their biggest hopes and dreams were put into hours working tirelessly, whether that be moving state to state as a migrant farm worker or long 12 hour shifts in a factory. My family worked hard my entire life (and lifetimes before me) in hopes that they could provide me the education they couldn't even dream of, and to me that's a gift I'll spend the rest of my life attempting to repay them for.
Are there any Clubs, Activities, or Involvements that you were a part of at Ithaca College?
Thank you to HiFashion Studios who took a chance on a science nerd with a passion for makeup. I always had a creative outlet with this club, and I cant wait to be in the crowd watching the fashion shows as time goes on.
