“Being a first generation college student and growing up in a less privileged community was a challenge. However, EOF has helped me throughout my entire undergraduate years and they continue to help me throughout my graduate career. My educational pursuits would not be possible without the generous support, love, and commitment that SEBS EOF gives me. I am so thankful for each advisor and dean for helping me along the way and advising me to not give up on my dream and to continue my education. SEBS EOF has taught me many life lessons that I will cherish forever.”
