Recognizing First-Gen College Students

“Being a first-generation college student means that I am a product of my decision to step out of my comfort zone. I get to obtain my education and follow my dreams with the support of my mother as I pursue something that is new to both of us, and the resources from scholarship programs like Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars empower me to do so.”
