"I have learned to look at being first-generation as an asset. I've gotten to share my journey and talk about the value that being a first-generation student provides with incoming and prospective Drexel students. Moving forward, I hope to continue to be vocal about my experience as a first-generation college student at Drexel to hopefully empower other students who come to campus feeling just as scared and lost as I did."
Kaylee Wilson, a third-year sociology and global public health double major, shares her experience finding community and empowerment as a first-generation college student in this guest blog.
