“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.”

I am a first generation college student. I did not understand or realize the implications of the challenges I would meet as I was navigating my college years and it is only now that I am beginning to understand that I overcame adversity that statics say should have kept me down. What an honor to give presentations at the recent Music Association of California Community Colleges Conference where I was able to share the challenges for first generation college students and discuss ways to provide resources and help them succeed; changing the trajectory of their family lineage.
