Meet Apryl Adames
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
College: School of Industrial and Labor Relations
Apryl is part of the inaugural class of Kessler Presidential Scholars, a program supporting first-generation college students at Cornell.
Being a first generation college student means being a source of hope and inspiration to all of my family. The unconditional love and appreciation I receive from them proves to me that there is more to the American Dream than just another white picket fence. Their support drives me forward and gives me the strength I need to pursue a career.
