I am a proud first-generation college graduate and I learned to navigate systems that were not created for underserved students of color like myself. I went from survival on campus to thriving, having graduated with honors. My story can no longer be the exception, it must be the expectation of all students. I’m running for students because our zip codes should not define our destinies. It’s time to stop asking students to overcome the odds and it’s time we start changing the odds.
