Northern Arizona University

I'm Tatiana, a first-gen college student and today we're talking about a topic close to my heart--- what it means to be a first-generation college student. In a little bit we'll meet my fellow Lumberjack Chilel who's also a first-gen student. We'll be sharing our journey, how we ended up at NAU, the challenges first gen students may face and most importantly-- the resources that are out there to help us.

For me, being a first generation student means I am a person who is willing to go above and beyond. I am a person who is willing to put in the extra effort. To anyone out there who is struggling to decide whether to go to college or continue in college -- I can tell you from being a senior-- it's well worth it. It's well worth your time, well worth your effort. Soon I will be able to say I'm the first in my family to graduate college.
