As a first generation college student, I started the race from behind the starting line. 10 years and 2 kids later, I now have a master’s degree in information technology and a lot of knowledge to give to the next generation. It is my goal to create a mobile application that can provide free resources to high school graduates planning for what happens after graduation. I know college is not for everyone. I want students to have the knowledge needed to make an educated decision for themselves. My massive student loan debt means I have no resource to devote to this project. If I could be relieved of this debt, I vow to put forth my available resources to prevent future generation from drowning in the astronomical level of debt of my generation. We have the knowledge. It is our responsibility to provide a more dynamic future for those who come after. “We could be heroes” if we’re just given a chance to be better and do better.
