What makes working at First Graduate meaningful to you?

Growing up in a single-parent household, meant navigating the college application process on my own most of the time and resources at my high school were minimal. I was ineligible for the state schools I applied to due to a requirement that I was unaware of and was excited to attend an out of state institution without considering the cost. At the end of my first semester, I packed up my dorm room worried that I would not be able to return because my financial aid application had not been completed correctly. Thankfully, I was able to correct it and return for my Spring semester and following semesters to complete my first degree. As an advisor, I hope to help fill the gaps that were missing at the beginning of my college experience.
