Favorite Thing about being a Buckeyes First Scholar:

It's given me a lot of professional development opportunities and has also given me a group of other first-generation students who understand the barriers and advantages to being first-generation.

What does being First-Gen mean to you?

It means that I have been able to find solutions for the common challenges of college using resources aside from my family. Their support means everything to me, but I have had to figure out how to be a college student primarily on my own.
