Meet Kaylin De Silva

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
College: College of Human Ecology
Year: 2023

Kaylin is part of the inaugural class of Kessler Presidential Scholars, a program supporting first-generation college students at Cornell.

Kaylin says, "To me, being a first generation college student means making the most of the opportunity my parents gave me by immigrating to the United States. Being a Kessler Presidential Scholar means being recognized for the efforts we’ve made to achieve academic success and further our education, despite not having the same resources that others had access to."
