I have found support here at Cornell through the Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives (OADI) and Cornell Tradition. For me, being a first-generation college and low-income student meant that I would have to work harder in order to keep up with my peers. Through the support I have found at Cornell, I am motivated to accomplish my goals. I want to give hope to other first-generation students who might be facing a lot of struggles. I want them to see that if I've done it, it is possible for them to acheive their goals too. I want to positively influence other first-generation students through my lifestyle and my story.
