Major: Occupational therapy doctoral program, IU School of Health and Human Sciences
It was intimidating knowing that I would be the first person in my family who would apply for and attend college, but I was very determined. I overcame a lot of obstacles, and now I have a bachelor's degree in health sciences and am continuing on in a doctorate program for occupational therapy.
My advice for other students is to talk to your professors when things come up because nearly every time, they will understand and do what they can to help you succeed. Although you may have different experiences from other students, you are smart and deserve to be here. You are not less than anyone else. Learn as much as you can while you are here and soak up all the knowledge IUPUI has to offer.
If I could go back and do one thing differently, I would apply for alternative spring break and actually go on the trip. They offer scholarships for first-generation students.
